Global attractor is a basic concept to study the long-time behavior of solutions of the various equations. This paper is investigated with the existence of a global attractor for the beam equation $$u_{tt}+{\Delta}^2u-{\nabla}{\cdot}\{{\sigma}({\mid}{\nabla}u{\mid}^2){\nabla}u\}+f(u)+a(x)g(u_t)=h,$$ using multipliers technique and Nakao's Lemma.
