Abstract: Existence and uniqueness theorems are proved for global weak solutions of initial-boundary value problems corresponding to the equation

$\displaystyle {u_{tt}} = {\left( {\sigma \left( {{u_x}} \right)} \right)_x} + {\left( {\alpha \left( {{u_x}} \right){u_{xt}}} \right)_x} + f$

under assumptions that do not require smoothness or monotonicity of $ \sigma $. The initial data are not assumed to be smooth, the boundary data are allowed to be time dependent, and $ f$ is only assumed to be in $ {L^2}$.
