We study the Cauchy problem for damped wave equations with a timedependent propagation speed and dissipation. The model of interest is u(tt) - a(t)(2) Delta u + b(t)u(t) = 0, u(0, x) = u(0)(x), u(t)(0, x) = u(1)(x). We assume a is an element of L-1(R+). Then we propose a classification of dissipation terms in noneffective and effective. In each case we derive estimates for kinetic and elastic type energies by developing a suitable WKB analysis. Moreover, we show optimality of results by the aid of scale-invariant models. Finally, we explain by an example that in some estimates a loss of regularity appears. (AU)
