In particle reinforced composite materials, inclusions near at free surface cause locally high stress concentrations. To make clear the local concentrations is very important to estimate the strength of the whole material. In the present work, we present an analytic solution for a semi-infinite elastic plate containing an elliptic inclusion under uniaxial tension at infinity. Papcovich-Neuber displacement potentital functions are used for the analysis.
