AB - The Griffith model for the mechanics of fractures in brittle materials is consider in the weak formulation of SBD spaces. We suggest an approximation, in the sense of Gamma-convergence, by a sequence of discrete functionals defined on finite elements spaces over structured and adaptive triangulations. The quasi-static evolution for boundary value problems is also taken into account and some numerical results are shown.
