We investigate an initial-boundary value problem for the quasilinear Westervelt equation which models the propagation of sound in fluidic media. We prove that, if the initial data are sufficiently small and regular, then there exists a unique global solution with optimal $L_p$-regularity. We show furthermore that the solution converges to zero at an exponential rate as time tends to infinity. Our techniques are based on maximal $L_p$-regularity for abstract quasilinear parabolic equations.
