The energy in a square membrane Ω subject to constant viscous damping on a subset ω Ω decays exponentially in time as soon as ω satisfies a geometrical condition known as the “Bardos-Lebeau-Rauch” condition. The rate τ ( ω ) of this decay satisfies τ ( ω ) = 2 min ( - μ ( ω ) , g ( ω ) ) (see Lebeau [Math. Phys. Stud.19 (1996) 73–109]). Here μ ( ω ) denotes the spectral abscissa of the damped wave equation operator and  g ( ω ) is a number called the geometrical quantity of ω and defined as follows. A ray in Ω is the trajectory generated by the free motion of a mass-point in Ω subject to elastic reflections on the boundary. These reflections obey the law of geometrical optics. The geometrical quantity g ( ω ) is then defined as the upper limit (large time asymptotics) of the average trajectory length. We give here an algorithm to compute explicitly g ( ω ) when ω is a finite union of squares.
