Abstract: In this work we study the asymptotic behavior of solutions of a dissipative BBM equation in $\R^N$ with periodic coefficients. We use Bloch waves decomposition to obtain a complete expansion, as $t\to+\infty$, and conclude that the solutions behave, in a first approximation, as the homogenized heat kernel.
