By reasoning a priori it seems to me that the oxidation of one mole of carbon should always release the same amount of energy, although this might vary slightly with temperature.
It follows that there is a fixed upper temperature which a bloomery can achieve. (subject to variations in the mineral content of fuel and ore and also to input air temperature (ambient temperature).
Can anyone help with a more precise definition of this problem?
