THERMAL ANALYSIS

18.1 INTRODUCTION

Thermal analysis is a branch of materials science where the properties of materials are studied as they change with temperature. Thermometric methods are distinct analytical tools; several commonly used methods are distinguished from one another by the property which is measured as mentioned in Table 18.1. Data are obtained in the form of continuously recorded curves; these may be regarded as thermal data.
