Abstract: A similarity transformation is used to reduce the system of second-order equations, governing elastodynamic plane problems in an orthotropic medium, to a first-order elliptic system of the Cauchy-Riemann type. A complex variable notation is then introduced to derive in a straightforward way the solution of two noticeable elastodynamic crack problems.
