Abstract: The dynamical behavior of non-autonomous strongly damped wave-type evolutionary equations with linear memory, critical nonlinearity, and time-dependent external forcing is investigated. The time-dependent external forcing is assumed to be only translation-bounded, instead of translation-compact. First, the asymptotic regularity of solutions is proved, and then the existence of the compact uniform attractor together with its structure and regularity is obtained.

Keywords:  Non-autonomous systems with memory, wave equations, critical exponent, asymptotic regularity, uniform attractor.
