We consider a blow-up phenomenon for ${ \partial_t^2 u_ \varepsilon}$ ${- \varepsilon^2 \partial_x^2u_ \varepsilon }$ ${ = F(\partial_t u_ \varepsilon)}.$ The derivative of the solution $\partial_t u_ \varepsilon$ blows-up on a curve $t = T_ \varepsilon(x)$ if we impose some conditions on the initial values and the nonlinear term $F$. We call $T_ \varepsilon$ blow-up curve for ${ \partial_t^2 u_ \varepsilon}$ ${- \varepsilon^2 \partial_x^2u_ \varepsilon }$ ${ = F(\partial_t u_ \varepsilon)}.$ In the same way, we consider the blow-up curve $t = \tilde{T}(x)$ for ${\partial_t^2 u}$ $=$ ${F(\partial_t u)}.$ The purpose of this paper is to show that, for each $x$, $T_ \varepsilon(x)$ converges to $\tilde{T}(x)$ as $\varepsilon\rightarrow 0.$
