The fundamental solutions required in boundary element analysis- of torsional problems of nonhomogeneous transversely isotropic media are derived.in this paper. The elastic constants of the nonhomogeneous medium are assumed to be variables as functions of cylindrical coordinates in the forms ra exp (At) and rtt(z+cy. The displacement resulting from an axisymmetric ring of tangential forces applied in the interior of a infinite space and of a half-space are obtained.The effects of nonhomogeneity are compared and discussed.
