    This second Jerry L. Swedlow Memorial Lecture presents a few significant developments in fracture mechanics that occurred over the past 25 years and some unresolved problems relating to materials and design and to technology transfer and education. Examples of some accomplishments and problems needing solutions are presented in areas of fracture toughness, including elastic, elastic-plastic and short cracks, and of environmental effects.

    Professor Jerry L. Swedlow was an educator and a researcher who devoted his career to the transfer of technology to his students and to scientists and engineers. Thus, the lecture appropriately concludes with a few observations, needs, and recommendations concerning technology transfer.
