The plane displacement and traction-displacement problems for anisotropic elastic wedges are solved by use of the complex function representation of the plane solution in conjunction with the Mellin transform. The special forms of the solutions pertinent to orthotropic wedges with a material symmetry axis along the wedge bisector is also presented and the dependence of the order of the stress singularities at the apex on the wedge angle and material parameters is shown graphically for this case.
