In this paper we consider a Timoshenko system subject to a complementary effect of frictional damping and viscoelastic damping. Under very general assumptions on the relaxation function and the frictional damping term, we establish, for the first time as per our knowledge, explicit and optimal energy decay rates for this system. Our result generalizes and improves earlier related results in the literature.
