The proposed 1D elastic metamaterial rod finds application in nondestructive evaluation, as a filter in the transduction side, where only the torsional and flexural modes need to be generated by isolating longitudinal modes. In this Letter, this is achieved by obtaining a wide bandgap in low-frequency ultrasound regime. The novelty of the proposed design arises from the use of a high impedance mismatch between the materials selected for the rod. The proposed concept is demonstrated and verified with numerical simulations. The effectiveness of the proposed technique is confirmed by comparing the results obtained from the rod made of a single material. © The Institution of Engineering and Technology 2020
