Abstract

In the paper, the general decay of energy solutions for a type III thermoelastic coupled system with distributed delay is studied. The coupling is via the acoustic boundary conditions. Our result is obtained under a class of generality of the relaxation function $g:\mathbb R_+\to \mathbb R_+$ satisfying the inequality $g'(t)\leq -\xi(t) \mathcal H(t)$ for all $t\geq 0$, where $\xi$ and $\mathcal H$ are functions satisfying some specific properties. This work extends previous works with thermoelasticity of type III and improves earlier results in the literature.
