The global existence of smooth solutions to the equations of nonlinear hyperbolic system of 2nd order with third order viscosity is shown for small and smooth initial data in a bounded domain of n-dimensional Euclidean space with smooth boundary. Dirichlet boundary condition is studied and the asymptotic behaviour of exponential decay type of solutions as t tending to ∞ is described. Time periodic solutions are also studied. As an application of our main theorem, nonlinear viscoelasticity, strongly damped nonlinear wave equation and acoustic wave equation in viscous conducting fluid are treated.
