Abstract. In this paper we investigate the existence and uniqueness of solution for the equation $u^{\prime\prime}-\Delta u=-\nabla p$ in a noncylindrical domain $\widehat{Q}$, with div $u=0$ in $\widehat{Q}$, under some initial and boundary conditions. This model, in a cylindrical domain, was originally proposed by J.L. Lions and it is related to the dynamics elasticity for incompressible materials.
