The 2005 Arthur F. Taggart Award  

Awarded To: Chen-Luh Lin

for the paper “Three dimensional analysis of particulates in mineral processing systems by cone beam X-ray microtomography”
Dr. Chen-Luh Lin is a Research Professor at the University of Utah. His research interests include applications of X-ray microtomography (XMT) on characterization and quantitative analysis of particulate system, mineral exposure analysis for heap leaching operation, fluid flow through the porous media, on-line size analysis, and mineral liberation. Dr. Lin has made a number of significant contributions in the area of particle technology, specifically the characterization and simulation of particle processes. The contributions include the analysis of particle size, shape, composition, and the structure of packed beds particularly with regard to fluid flow in such. Dr. Lin is particularly noted for the development of the "On-line coarse particle size analyzer" (OPSA) system now licensed from the University of Utah by two companies and being used industrially at several plant operations in the U.S. and Brazil. Further, Dr. Lin has significantly contributed to the design, acquisition, installation and operation of a unique X-ray micro CT facility. This state-of-the-art facility is used to research various areas including mineral liberation/exposure analysis and filtration and fluid transport studies.
