In this Note alternative formulae are derived for the elastic fields due to homogeneous initial strains in an isotropic spherical inclusion embedded in an isotropic infinite medium, assuming a shape conserving volume change of the inclusion. The bulk modulus of the inclusion and the shear modulus of the matrix are the only physically relevant elastic constants necessary to describe analytically displacements, strains, and stresses in the inclusion and the matrix.
