This paper addresses the computation of dispersion curves, mode shapes and propagation of elastic guided waves. It summarizes the approaches based on the Scaled Boundary Finite Element Method. Descriptions for plates, rods, pipelines and waveguides with an arbitrary cross section are included. The important steps for the approximation of the displacement in bounded and unbounded domains are stated. The grid generation process is explained. It is highlighted that the Scaled Boundary Finite Element Method is very efficient, if large portions of the domain are either straight or with a constant curvature. The computation of dispersion curves for layered structures is presented.
