The two dimensional equation for transversal vibrations of an elastoplastic plate is derived from a general three dimensional system with a single yield tensorial von Mises plasticity model in the five dimensional deviatoric space. It leads after dimensional reduction to a multiyield three dimensional Prandtl-Ishlinskii hysteresis model whose weight function is explicitly given. The resulting partial differential equation with hysteresis is solved by means of viscous approximations and a monotonicity argument.
