Abstract : The general problem of the scattering of waves from a transversely isotropic piezoelectric cylinder is examined. The solution for the interaction of an electromagnetic wave with a circular piezoelectric cylinder or antenna is presented. Solutions for the scattering of axial shear and compressional elastic waves by a piezoelectric circular cylinder embedded in an elastic medium is also presented. A few numerical results are presented for barium titanate. (Author)
