In this work we consider a semilinear initial boundary-value problem modelling an elastic thin plate (in the context of the so-called Kirchhoff-Love theory) coupled with an elastic membrane, regarding homogeneous boundary conditions. By means of the theory of strongly continuous semigroups of linear operators applied to abstract semilinear initial valued problems , we obtain existence and uniqueness of a weak solution which is defined in a suitable way.
