In this work, we investigate an initial boundary value problem related to the nonlinear hyperbolic equation $u_{tt}+ u_{xxxx}+ \alpha u_{xxxxt}= f(u_{x})_{x}$, for $f(s)=|s|^{\rho}+|s|^{\sigma},\ 1<\rho,\sigma ,\ \alpha>0$. Under suitable conditions, we prove the existence of global solutions and the exponential decay of energy. The nonlinearity\ $f(s)$\ introduces some obstacles in the process of obtaining a priori estimates and we overcome this difficulty by employing an argument due to Tartar (1978). The exponential decay is obtained via an integral inequality introduced by Komornik (1994).
