Professor C. L. Tien died in October 2002 after a year-long battle for his life in California. A personal and professional friend for many years, Chang-Lin will be sorely missed by the heat-transfer community.
Before he fell ill, Professor Tien delivered a Plenary Speech at the 2000 National Heat Transfer Conference in Pittsburgh. I consider this speech to be Chang-Lin’s testament to the international heat transfer community and it is printed below.
Here are the words of Chang-Lin Tien which I call the Global Strategy on Technical Research and Development in the New Millennium*:
I have been working in heat transfer for 45 years and moved among its various areas. After serving as the Chancellor of University of California at Berkeley, I returned to the faculty with a title of University Professor in Management of Technology. My office is located in the Mechanical Engineering Department and I still work on research, guiding students and seeking funding. With my experience in the recent years, I would like to address the Global Technical R&D Strategy in this new Millennium. This is an especially timely issue in this era of a New Economy. This New Economy is showing that it has the volatile nature of dynamic changes. If we do not pay sufficient attention to our strategy of R&D, there is the risk that we will get lost and fall behind the competition.
