In this paper, we study on the initial-boundary value problem for nonlinear wave equations of higher-order Kirchhoff type with Strong Dissipation: . At first, we prove the existence and uniqueness of the local solution by the Banach contraction mapping principle. Then, by “Concavity” method we establish three blow-up results for certain solutions in the case 1): , in the case 2): and in the case 3): . At last, we consider that the estimation of the upper bounds of the blow-up time is given for deferent initial energy.
