In this paper, the Wave Finite Element Method (WFEM) is developed for modelling of stress wave propagation in one-dimensional problem of nonhomogeneous linear, anisotropic micropolar rod of variable cross section. For this purpose, the WFEM equations are developed based on the micropolar theory of elasticity. Two kinds of waves with fast and slow velocities are detected. For micropolar medium, an additional rotational Degree of Freedom (DOF) is considered besides the classical elasticity’s DOF. The method proposed in this paper is implemented to solve the wave propagation and impact problems in micropolar rods with different layers. The results of the proposed method are compared with some numerical and/or analytical solutions available in the literature, which indicate excellent agreements between the results.
