In this paper, the sliding contact of a rigid sinusoid over a viscoelastic halfplane is studied by means of an analytical procedure that reduced the original viscoelastic system to an elastic equivalent one, which has been already solved in [1]. In such a way, the solution of the original viscoelastic contact problem requires just to numerically solve a set of two integral equations. Results show the viscoelasticity influence on the solution by means of a detailed analysis of contact area, pressure and displacement distribution. A particular attention is paid to the transition from full contact to partial contact conditions.
