The theory of dynamic antiplane piezoelectricity is applied to solve the problem of a circular piezoelectric inclusion embedded in an infinite piezoelectric matrix subjected to horizontally polarized shear waves and a steady-state inplane electrical load. The problem is formulated by means of the wave function expansion method. Numerical values on the dynamic stress and electric field concentrations are obtained, and the results are displayed graphically to exhibit the electroelastic interactions.
