In this paper, we investigate the decay rate of stabilization of the solution of the system of partial differential equations governing the dynamics of martensitic phase transitions in shape memory alloys under the presence of a viscous stress. The corresponding free energy is assumed in Landau-Ginzburg form and nonconvex as a function of the order parametr. We prove that for appropriate constants, which appear in the above-mentioned model, we can decide upon the exponencial decrease of the solution to its attractor for time tending to infinity.
