Maginot mapsEdit

I've noticed that you have uploaded a lot of maps of the Maginot Line from cartomaginot.com.

Please review the license at cartomaginot.com and compare it with Commons:Licensing#Acceptable licenses. The Commons liscense states that "commercial use must be allowed. The cartomaginot copyright specifically forbids commercial use.

I mention all this because I'm writing a series of articles on the English Wikipedia about Maginot fortifications and almost used the maps until I looked at the source. They would not be usable on the English Wikipedia, which has less stringent rules than Commons, so I don't think they can remain on Commons. You may wish to ask a Commons administrator for advice.

File:Lower bell Blast furnace Völklingen Ironworks.JPGEdit

Helo! Please, look on this foto File:Lower bell Blast furnace Völklingen Ironworks.JPG. Are you sure that the bell showed on it is a "small bell" as you have wrote in the description of the foto. As I understend a lower bell should to be a big bell but not small bell. Blast furnace chip worker (talk) 21:38, 1 June 2013 (UTC)

Up to this bell, there is another bell, which is pictured in File:Upper bell Blast furnace Völklingen Ironworks 2.JPG (in this picture, the upper bell is only 15 cm high and I took the picture through this small opening, but the upper bell can be lifted to 2 meters high, please look at here). And it seems that the lower bell is smaller than the upper one, isn't it?
I don't have any cross section or information about that design Völklingen BF top. Do you have something? It will be welcome to check that point! Borvan53 (talk) 19:36, 2 June 2013 (UTC)
I am no great expert on late 19th century blast furnaces. The bell was used to close the top of a furnace, except when it was being charged. This had the effect of directing the hot waste gases into a Cowper stove, a form of heat exchanger, so that the blast into the furnace could be heated. Opening a single bell had the effect of directing the whole blast into the open furnace. A number of systems were apprently devised to deal with this. One with two bells would solve the problem: skips with the charge were hauled to the top of the furnace and tipped into a hopper; then the upper bell was lowered dropping the charge inot the space between, while a lower bell kept the furnace gas-tight; finally then the upper bell being raised (closing it) and the lower one opened, so that the charge entered the furnace proper. (based on line drawings in G. Reginald Bashford, The manufacture of Iron and Steel: 1. Iron production (3rd edition, Chapman & Hall, London 1964), pp 21-31. I would be surprised at the upper opening being as small as 15 cm. The book just cited refers to diamenters for the bell - the lower bell of 13-15 feet (foot = about 30 cm). One system illustrated had an upper bell descending 2.5 feet, and I measure its diameter as double that. Unfortunately, I do not read German and the article cited by Borvan would not transalate. Nevertheless, a newspaper is far from an ideal source. The system at Völklingen does not seem quite like any of the illustrations I am looking at, but the upper bell was clearly smaller than the lower one. 94.171.107.65 16:18, 21 July 2013 (UTC) -- Peterkingiron of English WP
Please only look the picture on the newspaper, and don't read the german text. You will notice that the bell-tops of Volkingen Ironworks are not from Arthur Glenn McKee (I have written the article), but have a very different design. And the lower bell is the smaller because its role is the same than the upper bell of a McKee top. You can also read the book Blast-furnace construction in America to have more details on late 19th / early 20 th century blast furnaces. Borvan53 (talk) 16:32, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

De re metallicaEdit

Thank you for your uploads of these amazing 1500s engineering drawings/artworks. Do we have all of them? And is it possible to get best quality? I would like to try to get one to FP on EN-wiki. Probably the smelting one (for EV) or perhaps the underground burning one (or another) just because of sheer coolness.

Nice title!  
Good quality is difficult to define. You can get some poor pictures here, on wikisource (there are many, but it seems that you have ever looked there), try also a pictures search engine like this. About higher res pictures, I found this one and this (click next picture). Some portraits can be found there. But I am unable to provide you FP for Moissan's cell. I think the only way is to go to La Sorbonne, and take a shot! Borvan53 (talk) 18:25, 3 June 2013 (UTC)

I actually have what I need (for articles) in terms of having useful images. I am interested in getting something FP-worthy because the subject deserves it and also because I think it is beneficial to Wiki to see some different sorts of subjects and image types. Appreciate all your links. I really lack the ability to take it further myself though. I don't mind paying for an image, either. Just the one you showed is his electric arc furnace so off my topic.TCO (talk) 20:56, 3 June 2013 (UTC)

Copper productionEdit

I am sorry for not answering sooner, but I did not check my Commons talk page for a while. I have in Excel US mined copper production back to 1845. I will see if I can find a good source for other countries, especially the UK. Because the smelters at Swansea treated a lot of foreign ore, UK smelter production may have been substantially larger than mined copper production; any preference? Regards. Plazak (talk) 17:02, 3 May 2015 (UTC)

@Plazak: Yes, exactly : UK copper production shifted from local to foreign ore, and then decreased when US took the leadership. All these changes intersest me because I am trying to write some featured articles about copper extraction processes. Borvan53 (talk) 20:01, 3 May 2015 (UTC)
I found a source for UK mined copper production 1854-1885: B. R. Mitchell, Abstract of British Historical Statistics, Cambridge University Press, 1971, p.159.. If you want, I could email you an Excel file with the UK and US production. Regards. 21:04, 10 May 2015 (UTC)
@Plazak: I found the figures very ineresting : comparing p. 159 (whose stats sadly stops in 1885) wiith pp. 164-168 was my objective. If you have Excel files for US and UK production, I will take them! My mail is, typed in reverse (to avoid spam from bots) : moc.liamg@35drareg.naej Borvan53 (talk) 20:06, 17 May 2015 (UTC)

Jpegophobie / élimination rapideEdit

Bonjour Borvan53,

Pour aller plus vite, j'ai ajouté le détonateur {{speedydelete|asked by author}} sur les deux pages concernées : ça devrait sauter d'ici quelques jours.

Pour aller plus loin, j'ai pratiqué le même traitement sur la page correspondant à la partition.

Y a-t-il tant de pages utilisant encore le format jpeg ? J'en vois partout quand je creuse un peu, par curiosité, dans les articles sur la littérature, la peinture, et le reste... Leurs auteurs-contributeurs sont-ils conscients du danger ?

En tous cas, puisque je peux soumettre des dessins / schémas / partitions au format png, c'est adopté.

Cordialement, Flopinot2012 (talk) 09:55, 13 May 2015 (UTC)

Merci Flopinot2012 de compatir à ma jpegophobie  ! En fait, je me suis souvenu de tes gribouillis suite à la découverte de cet intéressant graphique. Ces jpeg n'étant pas catégorisés, j'ai à la fois soulagé mes pulsions de maniaque du rangement avec celles de suppressioniste, en me défoulant sur ces malheureux jpeg.
Quant à tes partitions en PNG, je te signale, pour ta -très respectable- culture, l'existence d'une bibliothèque de notes en format SVG, avec le code pour les utiliser. Sinon, on peut tout faire à la main, comme dans cet exemple. Mais dans ce cas, je n'ai pas (encore? ) l'intention d'imposer le SVG à qui que ce soit.

Evolution convertisseursEdit

Hello. I would like to ask you to translate your File:Evolution convertisseurs.svg into ukrainian language. Here is a vocabulary - Bessemer-Thomas - Бессемерівський і томасівський процеси, Siemens-Martin - мартенівський процес, Oxigen converter - киснево-конвертерний процес, Electric ark - Електросталеплавильне виробництво, Direct reduction - Безпосереднє (пряме) одержання заліза. If two last phrases are too long then tell about this and I will change them by somethin else. Thank you. I am sorry for trouble. Blast furnace chip worker (talk) 10:59, 14 October 2015 (UTC)

Hello Blast furnace chip worker! I will avoid "процес". But the two last phrases are too long, even if I change the size of the text. Can you propose shorter phrases ? Borvan53 (talk) 08:03, 15 October 2015 (UTC)
Well, Electric ark - Електрометалургія, Direct reduction - Безпосереднє одержання заліза or Пряме одержання заліза. If Безпосереднє одержання заліза or Пряме одержання заліза are too long for "Direct reduction" too, then use a phrase Пряме одержання.
By the way, I want ask you about one thing. Industrial use of oxygen converter production started in 1952 [3] but on your chart it is starting in 1950. Why? Maybe you have took into account a certain amount of steel wich was produced by this process in the experimental meltings in a test period of the history of this process until 1952? Or maybe your sources did this and take information being considering experimental meltings in a test period? Or something else? Blast furnace chip worker (talk) 14:45, 16 October 2015 (UTC)
  Done It was not so easy with these long titles. @Blast furnace chip worker: you just need to set the good parameter in the article.
About your question : first trials began in 1949, and then industrial production started about 1952. This graphic is then not very accurate. I need are the exact figures, to make a table, as I did, for example, with File:Production préréduits (DRI et HBI) par procédés Midrex HYL Charbon.svg. Borvan53 (talk) 20:16, 16 October 2015 (UTC)

Category namesEdit

Hello. I am sorry for I did not answer your quation immediately. First of all, I am not against the renaming you have made. I am not native English speaker so I can not discuss this topic professionally. All I can to say is the following. May be something of this will be interesting for you.

You made a remark that I «named the Dunkirk steel industry as a steel mill, although pictures show blast furnaces». Well, just take a look on the article Steel mill in the English wiki. There, they used a picture which shows blast furnaces. Of cause, I think it is a mistake because the article is about «steel plant» while blast furnaces produce pig iron but not steel. But when I used an expression «steel mill» in commons category name I used it in the meaning «ironworks» (usine sidérurgique) but not in meaning «steel shop» and, as we know, there are BFs in usine sidérurgique.

In the countries of former USSR the following two expressions are used:

1. металургійний завод(uk), металлургический завод(ru). Ukrainian-English and Russian-English dictionaries say: металургійний завод(uk), металлургический завод(ru)= metallurgical works = metallurgical plant = steel mill = steel foundry = steel works — is a plant where produce pig iron, steel and metal-roll or just one of these. It is composed with BF, casting mashines, open hearth furnace, converters, continuous casting, slabbing mill, rolling mills in this kind of plant but there are no coke ovens and sinter plant. If a plant produces only pig iron (pig iron ingots — gueuse, like fr: Usine sidérurgique d'Uckange did) or only steel (slabbs or also metal-roll from scrap-metal or from pig iron ingots) or only metal-roll (from slabbs and blooms), it is a металургійний завод(uk), металлургический завод(ru) nevertheless.

N. B. steel mill and steel works can be also translated into Ukraine and into Russian languages as «сталеливарний завод» (uk), «сталелитейный завод» (ru) — is a plant (works, not shop) in which the finish products are steel and metal-roll but not pig iron. There are can be BF but its presence is not necessarily.

Sometimes term «iron and steel works» is used for this kind of plant. One will not find an article (redirect) «iron and steel works» in wiki but nevertheless one can find en:Yenakiyeve Iron and Steel Works (comprise a sinter plant but have been called works, not combine).

One will not find an article «metallurgical plant» in the English wiki but nevertheless one can find, for example, en:Moscow Metallurgical Plant (built by a frenchman, in past there was an open hearth furnace to produce steel in this plant).

2. металургійний комбінат(uk), металлургический комбинат(ru) — is an soviet term «metallurgical combine» for which Ukrainian-English and Russian-English dictionaries say: iron and steel works = integrated iron-and-steel works  — is the complete industry (coke ovens, sinter plant, BF, open hearth furnace, converters, casting mahines, rolling mills, coating lines, etc.) But if a plant has no coke ovens, for example, it can be called «combine» too. For example, en:Azovstal iron and steel works (in Ukraine, the works, if I'm not mistaken, is not composed with sinter plan), en:Illich Steel and Iron Works (in Ukraine, the works, if I'm not mistaken, is not composed with coke ovens).

So, I think dictionaries I have do not give me a really clear answer on your quation. But from my experience and Wikipedia articles I have made the following conclusions:

  • still mill (or steel shop) → is the shop which produces liquid (molten) steel, blooms, billets or slabs. It is composed with open hearth furnace, converters, ladle metallurgy and continuous castig machines. But nevertheless sometimes one can find in literature and in internet that «still mill» means not just a «shop» (department) but means whole «steelworks». English wiki article en:Steel mill says: «A steel mill or steelworks is an industrial plant for the manufacture of steel.»
  • plant → sometimes means «works», sometimes means «shop». You was right then you told that English language is really fuzzy.
  • steelworks or iron and steel works → french: Usine sidérurgique → is the complete industry (coke ovens, sinter plant, BF, converters, casting mahines, rolling mills, coating lines, etc.) But it is posible that steelworks or iron and steel works not have a coke ovens, sinter plant.
  • iron and steel works or integrated iron-and-steel works → french: Usine sidérurgique → is the complete industry (coke ovens, sinter plant, BF, converters, casting mahines, rolling mills, coating lines, etc.)
  • ironworks → I am agree with you about your interpretation of the term "ironworks" as «the old way to produce iron and steel, before the invention of the Bessemer converter. It deals with puddling of fining processes.» But I think that when English-native speaker says «ironworks» he can means morden steelworks too. May be I am not right.

I am sorry for such long answer. I hope I did not expend much of your time. Blast furnace chip worker (talk) 20:21, 1 November 2015 (UTC)

Hello Blast furnace chip worker! Whoosh! What an answer!
When I am reading you, I notice that I was myself wrong in French ! An «usine sidérugique» only produces rolled products (or product designed to be rolled). I even pointed myself this definition in the article «Sidérurgie» ! An so the Usine sidérugique d'Uckange is an «usine sidérugique» only because it sometimes send liquid pig iron to nearby steel shops! Even in my own native language, things are not so clear.
I fully agree with everything you wrote. My main concern is then : how do we name steel shops / mills categories? Do not forget electrical arc furnaces! Do we need to create specific categories as «Stell mills in Germany», to focus on steel shop? Borvan53 (talk) 21:23, 3 November 2015 (UTC)
Hello. I am sorry, I was not on-line some time. Well, I think if Wikimedia has enough materials on steel shops (wich is just a part of whole steel works) in Germany or in any other country, one can create such kind of category. But I do not know how it should be called - "Steel mills in Germany" or "Steel shops in Germany". I think it is better, may be, to ask about this on en:Wikipedia: Reference desk/Language. Why you did not do this yet? Blast furnace chip worker (talk) 09:57, 8 November 2015 (UTC)
I doubt I will have the answer. The best way to have a good answer is to identify who writes good articles in English, and ask the question to him. But main contributions about steel topics in the English wiki are both old and of poor quality. Moreover, you probably know, like me, that metallurgists have a very light knowledge of industrial topics.
I finally prefer "steel mill" because of the word "mini mill" ("mini shop" doesn't exist). Borvan53 (talk) 18:55, 8 November 2015 (UTC)

The name of the professionEdit

Hello. Look, please, on the upper left corner of this picture File:The Pennsylvania railroad. What is the Franch name of the profession of those men who are on the top of the blast furnace and charge it? Dictionaries I have do not contain this word. I am going to create a category about this profession. Is the name of those people who on this blast furnace File:HautfourneauXVIII 1nb.jpg the same? How do you call a wheelbarrow on their hands? Have it a specific name or not? About English name of this profession I have asked another man who are English-native speaker. Blast furnace chip worker (talk) 16:29, 25 February 2016 (UTC)

Hello. The people who are responsible of feeding the furnace are the chargeur(s), like it is shown on the top left of your picture. The common French name of a wheelbarrow is a brouette (but in your picture there is a specific wheelbarrow with two wheels, which is often called a viviane). Borvan53 (talk) 09:59, 26 February 2016 (UTC)
I have to clarify. Are you only guessing that the people of this profession are called chargeur(s) or the name realy has been used on French blast furnaces or recorded in the literature in this matter? There are a separate word for this profession in the Ukrainian language (and in the Russian). This word is каталь (spellings in the two languages are equal but pronunciations are different).
And more about the barrow. See, please File:Charging a blast furnace at the Govan Iron Works.png. As I understand, the word viviane began to be used in the 20th century (see Étimologi in viviane). Therefore, the word is not unsuitable, since such wheelbarrow were used in the 19th century and earlier. Or am I wrong?
By the way, may be you have Franch-English dictionary and can to look in there and to see the english word for this profession, becouse as I have allready told there are no this word in my Ukraine - English and Russian - English dictionaries. Blast furnace chip worker (talk) 13:30, 26 February 2016 (UTC)
I found in THE French reference the evidence that chargeur is really the name of the profession. It has been recorded like that, and I checked that -in any part of France- there is no other word for that profession (which is a little bit strange because of its numerous dialects).
Yes, you are right : the word Viviane is too young for that tool. The word brouette is then better. About the tool used is your (very interesting) picture, the word brouette is better, although it is not very accurate. But I checked -always in THE reference- that this word is perfectly correct.
I can propose you this blast furnace French-English dictionary. It is not the best one. Because French vocabulary in blast furnace is very accurate and specific, many dictionaries have been made, but I don't remember where they are. Borvan53 (talk) 21:50, 28 February 2016 (UTC)
Ok, thank you for your answers. Blast furnace chip worker (talk) 13:35, 29 February 2016 (UTC)
