The induced magnetic fields generated by a line mechanical singularity in a magnetized elastic half plane are investigated in this paper. One version of linear theory for soft ferromagnetic elastic solids which has been developed by Pao and Yeh (1973) is adopted to analyze the plane strain problem undertaken. By applying the Fourier transform technique, the exact solutions for the generated magnetic inductions due to various mechanical singularities such as a single force, a dipole, and single couple are obtained in a closed form. The distributions of the generated inductions on the surface are shown with figures.
