Dome to Hearth Ratio's - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



Photo Galleries are back! Instructions below.

Dear forum users,
Thank you for your patience with the Photo galleries. We've got your galleries online!
We have finished writing a custom script to migrate the PhotoPlog to vBulletin5’s albums.

Unfortunately V-Bulletin killed the "Photoplogs" in their software upgrade which was unforeseen and we're the first development group to have written a script for getting the galleries back... that said, it took some time to reverse engineer the code and get the albums to move over seamlessly!

Forum users will be able to access their “PhotoPlog” images through their user profile page by clicking on the “Media” tab.
They will also be able to browse other albums by going to the albums page. (On the forum site, there is a link in the black bar beside “Forums” to the albums.)

In order for users to create an album please follow the steps below.
1) Go to user profile page and click “Media”
2) Click Add Photos
3) Enter Photo Gallery Title in the first field
4) Click Upload or Select from Photo Album to add photos
5) Click Post
6) Once posted, the album will be created as a “Topic” on the albums page for the public to see. The topic title will be the “Photo Gallery Title” they created before uploading their photos.

To create this migration path we used vBulletin5’s default album structure. Unfortunately, it won’t work like the “PhotoPlog” but is an album/gallery component on the forum now.

  • Dome to Hearth Ratio's

    I'd be curious to find out the range of Dome to Hearth Ratio's out there....

    James, did you measure the one's in Pompeii? I'll measure the big oven I found at Sagunt Castle when I get back there to get pictures.

    Measure your dome height by your hearth diameter...

    Mine is .46 (a 46cm high dome / 100 cm diameter hearth)

    18 inch/ 42inch = 0.42

      Reading the FB Pompeii plan ratios I came up with:

      .37 to .40 for the low vaults and

      .48 to .53 for the high vaults.

        So the Sagunto Castle oven comes in with a dome ration of 75 to 500 or so...

        ...0.15 ratio ...now that's a low dome...and not used for pizza's!

          I wish I had measured the ancient Pompeii ovens -- but alas, I didn't. Darn. I can definitely say that they were very high. You could almost stand up inside the bigger ones.
