The Fourier-transform technique has been employed to solve the exterior elasto-dynamic problem concerning the region outside a circular cavity in a plane elastic body. The normal and tangential tractions acting at the surface of the circular cavity are prescribed as arbitrary functions of the polar angle θ, and the time t. The case of impact, blast, and moving loads are studied in detail.
