It is shown that solutions to a nonlinear abstract wave equation (see equations (2.1)) under specified initial data cannot exist for all time. Precise estimates for the growth of solutions and the `escape time' are given. A similar nonexistence theorem is also proved for a nonlinear wave equation with dissipation (see equations (3.1)).
