The author considers the semi-linear dissipative hyperbolic equation \[ u_{tt}-\Delta u+f(u)+g(u_ t)=h(t,x)\quad on\quad R_+\times \Omega \quad and\quad u=0\quad on\quad R_+\times \partial \Omega. \] He gives a simpler proof of the result of Americo-Prouse on boundedness of the energy of the solution u. In the second part one proves the uniform ultimate boundedness of the trajectories (improving a result of Babin- Vishik).
