Analysis of the interaction of a cylindrical wave impinging on a cylindrical cavity is presented. It is assumed that a line source is located an arbitrary distance from the cavity and that its strength varies harmonically in time. The resulting dynamic stress concentration factors at the cavity wall are determined by considering the wave-diffraction effects. Numerical results indicate that the dynamic stress concentration factors around the cavity are dependent upon (a) distance from the source to the cavity, (b) wave number, and (c) the Poisson ratio of the medium. At high wave number (high frequency), the response to an incident cylindrical wave becomes almost identical with the response to an incident plane wave. At low wave number, however, the response departs drastically from all previous investigations where the incident wave was assumed to be a plane wave. Stress concentration factors substantially higher than those determined in earlier studies were noted in the present analysis.
