A solution is presented for the two-dimensional elastic field created by the interaction of an edge dislocation with a rigid elliptical inclusion. The complex potential approach by Muskhelishvili is used and a closed-form solution is obtained. Contour plots for the glide component of the Peach–Koehler forces are presented. Particular attention is paid to the rigid body of the inclusion with respect to the dislocation.
