Based on the equivalent inclusion method, the load transfer problem of a finite cylindrical fiber embedded in an elastic half-space of different elastic properties is presented. The equivalent condition of inhomogeneity and inclusion problems simulates the fiber to an inclusion with chosen eigenstrains, and the problem is formulated to a set of integral equations with the unknown strength of eigenstrains. A numerical procedure is developed using a discretizing scheme by which the set of integral equations is reduced to a system of algebraic equations.
