Abstract. We consider the system a class of nonlinear higher-order wave equations \begin{equation*}
\left\{
\begin{array}{c}
u_{tt}+\left( -\bigtriangleup \ri...
...
^{q-1}v_{t}=f_{2}\left( u,v\right) ,\
\end{array}%
\right.
\end{equation*}
with initial and Dirichlet boundary conditions. Under suitable conditions on the initial datum, the theorems of global existence and decay are proved.
