Thermal Analysis deals with the theories of thermal analysis (thermodynamics, irreversible thermodynamics, and kinetics) as well as instrumentation and techniques (thermometry, differential thermal analysis, calorimetry, thermomechanical analysis and dilatometry, and thermogravimetry). Applications of thermal analysis are also described. This book consists of seven chapters and begins with a brief outline of the history and meaning of heat and temperature before listing the techniques of thermal analysis. The reader is then introduced to the basis of thermal analysis, paying particular attention to the macroscopic theories of matter, namely, equilibrium thermodynamics, irreversible thermodynamics, and kinetics. The next chapter discusses thermometry, focusing on the international temperature scale and the techniques of measuring temperature. Examples of heating and cooling curves are linked to the discussion of transitions. The groundwork for a detailed understanding of transition temperature is given. The chapters that follow explore the principles of differential thermal analysis, calorimetry, thermomechanical analysis and dilatometry, and thermogravimetry. This book is intended for the senior undergraduate or beginning graduate student, as well as for the researcher and teacher interested in thermal analysis.DSC Du Pont 910 133 error in melting peak shape 162 heat capacity measurement 242, 244 Heraeus 135 history 137, 235 Mettler 20 and 25 133 Netzsch 404 135 Netzsch 444 135 on cooling 242 Perkin-Elmer 137 Perkin- Elmer, operating principle 137, 139, 141 ... 20 level 247 radiant 4 rotational 1 translational 1 vibrational 1 energy, zero-point 252 engine, reversible 43 entanglement 195, 345anbsp;...
