In application to unsteady 1-D wave processes in solids, the wave finite element method (WFEM) in the form of the method of direct mathematical modeling (DMM), which begun to be developed in the late 1970’s, is distinguished by simplicity and clearness of computing procedure, is unconditionally stable and yields enough exact results by increase of finite element number and appropriate reduction of a time step.
