In this paper, an arbitrary angle waveguide bend made of a new heterostructure phononic crystal has been studied. By creation of line defects in the proposed heterostructure which is composed of square and rhombus phononic crystals, a simple structure waveguide bend with arbitrary angles is made. Analyzing the proposed bend showed that by creating line defects in the composition of the square and equilateral triangle lattices, 30˚ waveguide bend can be realized. Also the study showed that by creating line defects in the composition of the square and rhombus lattices, 40˚ (20˚) waveguide bend could be obtained if the angular constant of the rhombus lattice is 80˚ (40˚). The 40˚ and 20˚ waveguide bends have a narrow pass band which can be utilized as a filter to separate a specific frequency and guide it along a defined pass. Also the study shows that by incorporation of 90˚ bend within the presented heterostructure bends, waveguide bends can be realized that guide elastic waves in the arbitrary angles greater than 90˚.
