Spectral Analysis of Thermo-elastic Plates with Rotational Forces
We perform a spectral analysis of abstract thermo-elastic plate equations with ‘hinged’ B.C. in the presence of rotational forces, whereby the elastic equation is the (hyperbolic) Kirchoff equation. A precise description is given, which in particular shows that the resulting s.c. semi-group of contractions is neither compact nor differentiable for t > 0 (it contains an infinite-dimensional group invariant component). This is in sharp contrast with the case where rotational forces are neglected, whereby the elastic equation is the Euler-Bernoulli equation: in this latter case, the semigroup is, instead, analytic, under all canonical sets of B.C.
