Idea parabolic dome design/dimensions - 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.

  • Idea parabolic dome design/dimensions

    Hi folks,

    I've read before that the oven dome should have a parabolic cross section.

    This seems to make sense as all heat rising upwards is reflected downwards to the focal point... the same principle as a satellite dish. So, where should the focal point of the oven be... where you're going to put your pizza/bread? If so, where is this exactly? Right on the oven surface in the centre, or slightly above or below?

    I don't think it works quite like that. The heat transferred from the dome is mostly convective and it is not reflective or radiant heat.

    Also, I would think you would want to avoid having a focal point
    'hot spot" because you want even heat distribution throughout the oven.
