It is well-known that the critical exponent for semilinear damped wave equations is Fujita exponent when the damping is effective. Lai, Takamura and Wakasa in 2017 have obtained a blow-up result not only for super-Fujita exponent but also for the one closely related to Strauss exponent when the damping is scaling invariant and its constant is relatively small, which has been recently extended by Ikeda and Sobajima. Introducing a multiplier for the time-derivative of the spatial integral of unknown functions, we succeed in employing the techniques on the analysis for semilinear wave equations and proving a blow-up result for semilinear damped wave equations with sub-Strauss exponent when the damping is in the scattering range.
