In this work, we consider the problem of existence of global solutions for a scalar wave equation with dissipation. We also study the asymptotic behaviour in time of the solutions. The method used here is based in nonlinear techniques. Key words: wave equation, evolution model, decay of solution, asymptotic behaviour.
