The elastic field outside an ellipsoidal inclusion is investigated. No particular restrictions are imposed to eigenstrain distributions throughout the inclusion and to the anisotropy of elastic media for matrices. The solution is expressed in the form of integrals defined on a subspace of a unit sphere. Since the integrands of these integrals have no singularities, the numerical calculation on a computer can easily be performed.
