Augustin Betancourt and Mining Technologies: From Almadén to St Petersburg (1783--1824) (2010)

unapi

In this article, the authors discuss the early professional experiences of Spanish engineer Augustin Betancourt in the Almadén Royal Mercury Mines in La Mancha, Spain, and their influence on his career. It is suggested that his work at Almadén influenced his later work in Spain, France, England, and Russia and instilled in him a lifelong interest in subjects such as furnaces, mills, firing, water pumps, and industrial hygiene. Topics discussed include Betancourt's work on the principles of double action and the elasticity of vapours as well as the general fields of mining and public works.
