Abstract: This paper is concerned with the steady states of a one-dimensional strongly nonlinear PDE system arising from the study of phase transitions with microscopic movements. Using the plane analysis method, we prove that the number of equilibria is at most infinitely countable. Furthermore, we show that the global solution to the evolution system converges to an equilibrium in $ H^3\times H^1$ as $ t\rightarrow +\infty $.
