In the present paper, the closed form expressions for the displacements at any point of the transversely isotropic elastic medium with irregularity present in the medium have been obtained. A model is considered in which the irregularity is expressed by a rectangle shape and the medium is taken in a state of free from initial stress. To study the effect of irregularity present in the medium , the variation of displacements with horizontal distance have been drawn for different values of irregularity size. Also the comparison between the displacements for isotropic and transversely isotropic elastic medium is shown graphically. It is found that the irregularity have a notable effect on this deformation.
