A method based on the Radon transform is presented to determine the displacement field in a general anisotropic solid due to the application of a time-harmonic point force. The Radon transform reduces the system of coupled partial differential equations for the displacement components to a system of coupled ordinary differential equations. This system is reduced to an uncoupled form by the use of properties of eigenvectors and eigenvalues. The resulting simplified system can be solved easily. A back transformation to the original coordinate system and a subsequent application of the inverse Radon transform yields the displacements as a summation of a regular elastodynamic term and a singular static term. Both terms are integrals over a unit sphere. For the regular dynamic term, the surface integration can be evaluated numerically without difficulty. For the singular static term, the surface integral has been reduced to a line integral over half a unit circle. Reductions to the cases of isotropy and transverse isotropy have been worked out in detail. Examples illustrate applications of the method.
