The process of wave propagation in the discrete chain of bilinear oscillators subjected to several types of external harmonic excitation has been analysed. The phenomenon of sign inversion of the displacement is observed for tension-compression excitation. The solution for wave propagation in a continuous 1-D bimodular rod is developed and the numerical results are compared.
