In the present work, a nonlinear wave theory is used for the estimation of the material properties of a "microstretch" medium. For this purpose a thin plate is considered and triplicate Chebyshev polynomial series are used as admissible functions to ensure the satisfaction of geometric boundary conditions of the plate. The Ritz technique is applied to derive the frequency equation of the microstretch plate and an optimization procedure is performed by minimising the least square "distance" between computed natural frequencies from the energy method and measured natural frequencies. To realize the optimization procedure, a genetic algorithm is used to estimate the elastic moduli of microstretch medium.
