Bell, Isaac Lowthian


Born Feb. 15, 1816; died Dec. 20, 1904. English metallurgist; member of the London Royal Society (1874).

Bell owned an iron foundry in Cleveland (England) where he carried out a series of investigations of great significance for the creation of the theory of the blast furnace process. Bell published a detailed computation of the thermal balance of blast fusion (1869), in which mistakes of A. de Waterre, the first to establish such a balance, were eliminated. The most significant of Bell’s many published works on ferrous metallurgy is Principles of the Manufacture of Iron and Steel (1884).
