We consider a coupled PDE model of various fluid-structure interactions seen in nature. It has recently been shown by the authors [Contemp. Math. 440, 2007] that this model admits of an explicit semigroup generator representation 𝓐:D(𝓐)⊂ H → H, where H is the associated space of fluid-structure initial data. However, the argument for the maximality criterion was indirect, and did not provide for an explicit solution Φ ∈ D(𝓐) of the equation (λI-𝓐)Φ =F for given F ∈ H and λ > 0. The present...

The null controllability problem for a structurally damped abstract wave equation –often referred to in the literature as a structurally damped equation– is considered with a view towards obtaining optimal rates of blowup for the associated minimal energy function ${\mathcal{E}}_{min}\left(T\right)$, as terminal time $T\downarrow 0$. Key use is made of the underlying analyticity of the semigroup generated by the elastic operator $\mathcal{A}$, as well as of the explicit characterization of its domain of definition. We ultimately find that the blowup rate...
