Stress analysis was carried out on a cylindrical cavity in an infinite medium. The normal tractions, which act along the circumference of the bore, rotate continuously or change their rotating directions at t = 0. In this analysis, the Fourier-transform technique according to the theory of distributions was employed to investigate the relationship between the loading condition of traveling traction and the dynamic response. The theory of distributions verified the past solutions and in this analysis it also revealed the possibility of some transient solution.
