The right-angle welded joint is usefully and frequently used in the welded type for the steel structures. The present study is focused on the longitudinal elastic waves propagating through the right-angle welded joint of two rods. One uses the theory and numerical calculation to identify the consequence of the problems of reflection and transmission. The present study indicates that the incident longitudinal elastic waves are almost reflected in the horizontal rod while the values of 3% of the generated pulse are transmitted in the vertical rod.
