The problem of an elliptical crack embedded in an unbounded transversely isotropic piezoelectric medium and subjected to remote normal loading is considered first. The integral equation method developed by Roy and his coworkers has been applied suitably with proper modifications to solve the problem. The method has been further applied to solve the problem of a rigid elliptical punch indenting a transversely isotropic piezoelectric half space.
