This paper exactly analyzes the problem of a rigid conical punch indenting a transversely isotropic piezoelectric half-space. The potential theory method is employed and generalized to include the piezoelectric effect. By using the previous results of pure elasticity, exact solution is derived. It is found that all the elastoelectric variables are expressed in terms of elementary functions. Numerical results are finally performed.
