Title

Evaluation of accuracy and reproducibility of a high-temperature differential scanning calorimeter by specific heat and enthalpy of fusion measurements

Author

Abstract

"This thesis focuses on developing a set of optimum experimental parameters for high-temperature differential scanning calorimetry. A high-temperature differential scanning calorimeter (HTDSC) was used to check the accuracy and uncertainty of GTDSC measurements upon varying experimental parameters. A set of experimental variables was selected and specific heat or enthalpy of fusion measurements were carried out as case studies"--Abstract, leaf iii.
