Well-posedness and stabilization of an Euler-Bernoulli equation with a localized nonlinear dissipation involving the $p$-Laplacian

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • We consider an Euler-Bernoulli equation in a bounded domain with a local dissipation of viscoelastic type involving the $p$-Laplacian. The dissipation is effective in a suitable nonvoid subset of the domain under consideration. This equation corresponds to the plate equation with a localized structural damping when both the parameter $p$ and the space dimension equal two. First we prove existence, uniqueness, and smoothness results. Then, using an appropriate perturbed energy coupled with multiplier technique, we provide a constructive proof for the exponential and polynomial decay estimates of the underlying energy. It seems to us that this is the first time that a dissipation involving the $p$-Laplacian is used in the framework of stabilization of second order evolution equations with locally distributed damping.
