Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper discusses the stress fields when a spheroidal inclusion, free to slip along its interface, is subjected to a constant nonshear eigenstrain, and when an elastic body containing the inhomogeneity is under all-around tension or uniaxial tension at infinity. In each case the stress field in the inclusion or the inhomogeneity is not constant, contrary to Eshelby's solution. When sliding takes place, the stress increases locally compared with the perfect bonding case, but the elastic energy decreases due to the relaxation. The relative displacement (slip) along the interface is also evaluated.
