Abstract: The existence and uniqueness of local and global solutions for the Kirchhoff-Carrier nonlinear model for the vibrations of elastic strings in noncylindrical domains are investigated by means of the Galerkin Method. The asymptotic behaviour of the energy is also studied.
Keywords: Kirchhoff-Carrier; strings; noncylindrical; global solutions; asymptotic behaviour.
Classification (MSC2000): 35F30, 35K35.
