Abstract: We are interested in the asymptotic behaviour of global classical solutions to the initial-boundary value problem for the nonlinear dissipative wave equation in the whole space or the exterior domain outside a star-shaped obstacle. We shall treat the nonlinear dissipative term like $a_1 (1+\vert x \vert)^{-\delta} \vert u_t \vert^{\beta} u_t$ $(a_1$, $\beta$, $\delta>0)$ and prove that the energy does not in general decay. Further, we can deduce that the classical solution is asymptotically free and the local energy decays at a certain rate as the time goes to infinity.
