Asymptotic analysis for a weakly damped wave equation with application to a problem arising in elasticity

Academic Editor: Lars-Erik Persson
Received01 Dec 2007


The present work is devoted to the study of homogenization of the weakly damped wave equation Ωρε2uεt2(t)υdx+2ε2μΩfεEij(uεt(t))Eij(υ)dx+ε2λΩfεdiv(uεt(t))divυdx+ϑΩfεdiv(uε(t))divυdx=Ωf(t)υdxforallυ=(υ1,υ2,υ3)Vε(0<t<T), with initial conditions uε(0)=uεt(0)=ω(theoriginin3). Convergence homogenization results are achieved using the two-scale convergence theory.
