The direct methods of calculus were used to analyze the optimal control problems for some nonlocal differential equations. The problems involved functional-differential equations with argument deviation. The relaxation of a variational problem involving a local functional was reduced to some well-known convexification of the integrand. It was found that the proposed technique could be efficiently used for the treatment of T-convergence problems for optimal control settings.
