Heyno Smith

I want to introduce myself as Heyno Smith, presently an independent steel consultant. I have app. 30 years of experience in the steel industry, and mainly production aspects covering BF\’s, EAF\’s, BOF\’s, CC\’s, HSM\’s and to a smaller extent CRM\’s as well.

I am presently consulting a Vietnamese company interested in establishing a steel complex. There is high drive to accomplish this development, but minimal experience in any steel making aspects. In trying to explain some of the concepts, I found the info on ISPAT GURU to be very useful to address the basics of different steel making aspects. It is concise, and addresses the issues clearly and in relatively simple terms (although some explanation will still be required to a novice in this field).

I would like to introduce a more formal process of training the local personnel in basic concepts of steel making. Before starting my own notes and re-inventing the wheel, I was however wondering if you already have a comprehensive compilation of all the aspects covered in ISPAT GURU? I could pick them out one-by-one from the internet, but a more complete volume that can be used as reference would be much appreciated.

Could you please indicate if such a complete compilation is available, and if so, what cost is attached to it, if any. It would be great help, as the ISPAT GURU information is very useful and enlightening for novice steel makers as well \’\’veterans\’\’ like me!.”

I have found that your articles are of an utmost value in my continued work and advisories with developing nations and in their quest to educate their people and implement exploiting of their natural resources for their development.  I wish to thank you for that and after 50 years in the I&S industry find it to be a simple introduction to all the various subjects in the industry.

Thomas Reffle

I just wanted to thank you for this website. It is an amazing wealth of knowledge and experience. I just found it today and I cant believe how complete it is. I’m a polymer scientist for 27 years but I’m taking several metallurgy courses (for the fun of it) and need to write a paper as the last assignment. I choose vacuum degassing as my subject because we didn’t real get into that subject too much and in the polymer worked we use vacuum degassing for many applications. So not only do you have nice articles on that I found ten or twenty other articles I was interested reading, so now I have a great source to read over the winter break and for next semester.

Thank You for putting your life’s work for all to learn.

Vinit Ved
