Pretty good resource
By greg.styczynski70 March 12, 2016
This book is a pretty good resource for modeling and learning some basics of steel production. It opens with a history of steel making and discusses blast furnaces, open hearth furnaces, basic oxygen furnaces and electric furnaces. If you are looking to model a generic steel mill of the 1950's or newer you'll find everything you need here. I was hoping to find in depth information on cold charged open hearth mills of the 1900-1920s but the book doesn't mention that process at all. Nevertheless I would recommend this book to anyone planning to model the steel industry as I did gain enough valuable information to warrant the cost.
