Dynamic interaction is investigated theoretically between a circular cavity and the surface in a semi-infinite piezoelectric medium subjected to time-harmonic incident anti-plane shearing in the present paper. The formulations are based on the method of complex variable and wave function expandedness. Dynamic stress concentration factors at the edge of the circular cavity are obtained by solving boundary value problems with the method of orthogonal function expansion. The calculating results are plotted so as to show how the frequencies of incident wave, the piezoelectric characteristic parameters of the material and the structural geometries influence upon the dynamic stress concentration factors.
