In the present work, rectangular plates with various boundary conditions are Studied, which are modeled by the rnicrostretch theory. Wave propagation problem is investigated and new waves are observed which do not appear in the classical theory of elasticity. Ritz method is used for this investigation. Triplicate Chebyshev series, multiplied by boundary functions, are used as admissible functions and the frequency equations of the micro-stretch plate are obtained by the use of Chebyshev-Ritz method. The additional frequencies due to the microstructure of the plate are observed among the values of the frequencies obtained from the classical theory of elasticity. We observed that these additional frequencies disappear while the all microstretch constants are taken as zero.
