The semi-infinite bodies with a semi-ellipsoidal pit under uni-axial tension were analyzed by the body force method. The fundamental solutions necessary for analysis of the semi-infinite body under uni-axial tension were given newly in this paper. In numerical results, the effects of the free surface in the semi-infinite body were discussed by comparison with the infinite body with an ellipsoidal cavity.
