In this paper, the free flexural vibration of an elastic rectangular plate having initial imperfection is investigated including the effects of transverse shear and rotatory inertia. It is assumed that the vibration occurs with large amplitudes which leads to nonlinear differantial equations. On the basis of an assumed vibration mode, the modal equation of the plate is obtained and solved numerically.
