A spheroidal inclusion is embedded in an elastic matrix composed of a different material. Both materials are transversely isotropic with the material property axes parallel to the geometric axis of the spheroid. At the interface, the two materials are bonded. The matrix is subjected to a uniform axisymmetric stress field at infinity. Explicit expressions for the stress and displacement fields in the inclusion and the matrix will be presented. The analysis is within the realm of classical linear elasticity.
