In this study, the plane thermoelastic frictional contact problem between a magneto-electro-elastic (MEE) layer and a rigid cylindrical or flat punch is discussed. Punches are assumed to be perfect electromagnetic and thermal insulators; they slide over the layer with a small constant speed, and due to the friction, heat flux occurs. The general stress, displacement, and electromagnetic expressions for the contact problem are derived using the theory of thermoelasticity. Applying the boundary conditions, the contact problem is reduced to a Cauchy-type singular integral equation, which is then solved numerically using the Gauss-Jacobi integration formula.
