In this work we study elastic wave propagation in homogeneous and periodic beams. Considering axial deformation, torsional deformation and Euler-Bernoulli bending deformation theory we develop finite element formulations to predict the dispersion characteristics. We compare the performance between applying the wave propagation solution directly to the governing equation versus applying it at the boundaries.
