Abstract

We consider a differential model describing nonisothermal fast phase separation processes taking place in a three-dimensional bounded domain. This model consists of a viscous Cahn–Hilliard equation, characterized by the presence of an inertial term, which is linearly coupled with an evolution equation for the (relative) temperature. The latter can be of hyperbolic type if the Cattaneo– Maxwell heat conduction law is assumed. The state variables and the chemical potential are subject to the homogeneous Neumann boundary conditions. We first provide conditions which ensure the well-posedness of the initial and boundary value problem. Then, we prove that the corresponding dynamical system is dissipative and possesses a global attractor. Moreover, assuming that the nonlinear potential is real analytic, we establish that each trajectory converges to a single steady state by using a suitable version of the Lojasiewicz–Simon inequality. We also obtain an estimate of the decay rate to equilibrium.
