In this paper, the dynamic behavior of rectangular plate under the in-plane load is studied. The partial differential equation based on the mechanical model is established, which will be deduced into two ordinary differential equations by use of Galerkin method. The existence of 1/2 harmonic solutions of the dynamical system applying the harmonic balance method is analyzed. The amplitude-frequency relationship is found, and the stability of solutions is investigated. The stable zone of dynamical system is determined.
