Abstract: We address a model for adhesive unilateral frictionless Signorini-typecontact between bodies of heat-conductive viscoelastic material, in the linearKelvin-Voigt rheology, undergoing thermal expansion. The flow-rule fordebonding the adhesion is considered rate-independent and unidirectional, and athermodynamically consistent model is derived and analysed as far as theexistence of a weak solution is concerned.
