This paper is concerned with the following memory-type Timoshenko system
with Dirichlet boundary conditions, where g is a positive nonincreasing function satisfying, for some nonnegative functions \(\xi \) and G,
Under appropriate conditions on \(\xi \) and G, we establish some new decay results that generalize and improve many earlier results in the literature such as Mustafa (Math Methods Appl Sci 41(1): 192–204, 2018), Messaoudi et al. (J Integral Equ Appl 30(1): 117–145, 2018) and Guesmia (Math Model Anal 25(3): 351–373, 2020). We consider the equal speeds of propagation case, as well as the nonequal-speed case. Moreover, we delete some assumptions on the boundedness of initial data used in many earlier papers in the literature.
