The investigation is concerned with some of the effects of embedded flaws in an elastic half space subjected to torsional deformations. Specifically two types of flaws are considered: (a) a penny-shaped rigid inclusion, and (b) a penny-shaped crack. In each case the problem is reduced to a system of Fredholm integral equations. Graphical displays of the numerical results are included.
