A rigorous solution of the spherical inclusion problem with remote uniform strain or stress and imperfect elastic spring-type interface conditions is presented. In the case of thin elastic interphase, the interface spring constants are expressed in terms of interphase elastic properties and thickness. The state of strain/stress in the inclusion is nonhomogeneous for imperfect interface conditions in contrast to the homogeneous state for perfect interface condition. Numerical results are given to demonstrate the significance of imperfect interface effects.
