This paper solves the penny-shaped crack configuration in transversely isotropic solids with coupled magneto-electro-elastic properties. The crack plane is coincident with the plane of symmetry such that the resulting elastic, electric and magnetic fields are axially symmetric. The mechanical, electrical and magnetical loads are considered separately. Closed-form expressions for the stresses, electric displacements, and magnetic inductions near the crack frontier are given.
