We consider the stationary elasticity problem for a solid with fractures, and review, in the framework of Legendre-Fenchel duality, three equivalent formulations for the problem in terms of displacement, stress, and strain. For periodically distributed fractures, we prove a homogenization result using Mosco-convergence in the $L^2$- topology.

Joint work with Riuji Sato (Worcester Polytechnic Institute).
