We study the effect of approximation matrices to semi-discrete relaxation schemes for the equations of one-dimensional elastodynamics. We consider a semi-discrete relaxation scheme and establish convergence using the $L^p$ theory of compensated compactness. Then we study the convergence of an associated relaxation-diffusion system, inspired by the scheme. Numerical comparisons of fully-discrete schemes are carried out.
