Exact solutions are presented in closed forms for the axisymmetric stress and displacement fields caused by a solid or hollow circular cylindrical inclusion (with uniform axial eigenstrain prescribed) in an infinite elastic solid. The same expressions are obtained for the elastic fields for interior and exterior points of the inclusion. Although Eshelby’s solutions for ellipsoidal inclusions are uniform in the interior points, the present solutions do not show the uniformity. When the length of inclusion becomes infinite, the present solutions agree with Eshelby ’s results. The strain energy is also shown. The method of Green’s function is used.
