Propagation of small but finite amplitude waves in a nonlinear hyper-elastic plate of uniform thickness is considered. By employing a perturbation expansion, extensional waves are examined under the long wave limit. It is shown that the asymptotic wave field is governed by a Korteweg-DeVries (K-dV) equation. Then the propagation characteristics of the asymptotic waves are discussed via the well known solutions of the K-dV equation.
