Optimal Decay Rates for Kirchhoff Plates with Intermediate Damping

J. C. V. Bravo, H. P. Oquendo, J. E. M. Rivera


In this paper we study the asymptotic behavior of Kirchhoff plates with intermediate damping. The damping considered contemplates the frictional and the Kelvin-Voigt type dampings. We show that the semigroup those equations decays polynomially in time at least with the rate t^{-1/(2-2θ)}, where θ is a parameter in the interval [0,1[. Moreover, we prove that this decay rate is optimal.
