abstract = {We construct strong solutions for a nonlinear wave equation for a thin vibrating plate described by nonlinear elastodynamics. For sufficiently small thickness we obtain existence of strong solutions for large\\r\\ntimes under appropriate scaling of the initial values such that the limit system as h --> 0 is either the nonlinear von Karman plate equation or the linear fourth order Germain-Lagrange equation. In the case of the\\r\\nlinear Germain-Lagrange equation we even obtain a convergence rate of the three-dimensional solution to the solution of the two-dimensional linear plate equation.},

abstract = {The asymptotic behaviour of the solutions of three-dimensional nonlinear elastodynamics in a thin plate is studied, as the thickness $h$ of the plate tends to zero. Under appropriate scalings of the applied force and of the initial values in terms of $h$, it is shown that three-dimensional solutions of the nonlinear elastodynamic equation converge to solutions of the time-dependent von K\\\\\\\'arm\\\\\\\'an plate equation.},
