On january 4th jiang hongde, a member of the chinese academy of engineering and professor of energy and power engineering at the university, died in beijing at the age of 78 after failing to cure his illness, according to tsinghua university. He is the chief scientist of the national 973 project \"Research on the high performance heat-power conversion science and technology of gas turbine \", and the steam turbine design system developed and developed in China's power generation equipment manufacturing industry and power industry has been widely used. At the same time, he is teaching and educating people as his own responsibility, Tsinghua University won the \"mentor\" award. In his obituary, tsinghua university said that academician jiang hongde's life of patriotic devotion, self-improvement, rigorous scholarship, indifferent to fame and wealth, worthy of the model of teachers, his death is a great loss of tsinghua university, but also a great loss of science and technology in china.
Jiang Hongde, a native of Changsha, Hunan Province, was born on July 4,1942, and received undergraduate and graduate education from 1959 to 1968 in the gas turbine major of the Department of Power Machinery of Tsinghua University. He worked in Qingdao Steam Turbine Plant, Shandong Province from 1968 to 1978.
From 1978 to 2004, Jiang Hongde served in the Institute of Engineering Thermal Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and served as executive deputy director.During the period, the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the former Ministry of Machinery and Industry and the Ministry of Electric Power Industry initiated the \"Beijing Full 3D Power Engineering Co., Ltd.\".
According to the website of China Institute of Engineering, Jiang Hongde has long been engaged in theoretical and experimental research, technical development and engineering application of impeller machinery internal flow. He presided over the research and development of the new technology of \"steam turbine full three-dimensional design system \", which led to the improvement of the design concept, methods and manufacturing technology of steam turbine manufacturing industry in China; presided over the research and development of a variety of complex steam turbine components, and accelerated the upgrading of steam turbine products in China; in the project of modernizing the old steam turbine in China's thermal power station, he also presided over the design of a dozen units, which increased the thermal efficiency of the units by 5-7%, increased the output by 10%, and the thermal performance reached the contemporary international advanced level, creating significant social and economic benefits. In 1999, Jiang Hongde was elected academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering.
Since 2002, Chiang has taken \"research and autonomy of the core technology of heavy gas turbines\" as the main research direction, and presided over the first 973 projects with the theme of gas turbines in China --\" Research on the high performance heat-power conversion science and technology of gas turbines \"as the chief scientist. Its previous posts also include: tsinghua university gas turbine research center executive deputy director, china institute of power engineering executive director, china institute of engineering thermophysics vice-chairman.
After he was transferred to Tsinghua University in 2005, Jiang Hongde put the training of students in an important position, and the teaching ideas and methods were deeply loved by the students, and was selected as the 10th \"mentor of Tsinghua University\" by the graduate students in 2007.
According to the then tsinghua university media reports, he focused on the basic training of students, teaching students \"without learning to walk want to run is not good \", only in the undergraduate and graduate courses of learning to master the basic skills, can do a good job in scientific research. He also valued the correct style of study for his students, often saying to them,\" To learn is to be a man first; to enter his door, he must be upright. Learning must be down-to-earth, not impetuous, not to mention against scientific morality.
\"The energy industry, one of the country's pillar industries, cannot be completely foreign-owned and requires continuous independent innovation,\" he said. It's a long process that requires hard work, perseverance and perseverance, not being tempted by immediate interests, and ultimately giving the country a satisfactory answer.
