Thermal Analysis in Practice
Tips and Hints
The handbook is intended as a compendium of tips and information to help you get reproducible and reliable results in thermal analysis when using DSC, TGA, TMA and DMA. It is of course not possible to cover every aspect of these techniques in this small handbook. More complete and detailed background information is however available in the many references given on the various topics.
The handbook covers all the main topics involved in an analysis. It begins with a general introduction dealing with the choice of the correct measurement technique and is followed by sections on how to design an experiment and an overview of measurement precision. The topics include the sample, experimental parameters, evaluations, calibration and adjustment, and some miscellaneous points.
