A solution is presented for the two-dimensional elastic field created by the interaction of an edge dislocation with a rigid elliptical inclusion. The complex potential approach by Muskhelishvili is used and a closed-form solution is obtained. Contour plots for the glide component of the Peach-Koehler forces are presented. Particular attention is paid to the rigid body of the inclusion with respect to the dislocation.
