The fundamental problem of a point force acting in the interior of an unbounded transversely isotropic elastic space is reconsidered and formulated in cylindrical coordinates (r, θ, z). Navier-Cauchy equations are solved by Fourier transform with respect to θ in conjunction with the Hankel transforms of appropriate order with respect to r. A closed-form solution is obtained with the well-known Kelvin solution as a special case. The direct and systematic derivation can be easily extended to other problems of interest.
