The 5-dimensional Jordan-Brans-Dicke cosmologies in vacuum are found for the Bianchi type I metric, their relation with general relativity cosmologies is studied. Two solutions are possible, both produce effective pressure and energy density in the 4-dimensional G.R.-universes. One is a power-law relation, with two cases, the first one is forp eff=ρeff and the other forp eff=αρeff(− 1 < α < 1) has a behaviour as the open flat universe. The second solution is an exponential only valid forp eff=−ρeff. In all cases the three-space expansion reaches infinity ast→∞ and the fifth dimension can be made to decrease approaching zero. The scalar field can increase or decrease with time.
