ASTM International - ASTM E1981-98
Standard Guide for Assessing the Thermal Stability of Materials by Methods of Accelerating Rate Calorimetry
|Publication Date:||10 October 1998|
|ICS Code (Heat. Calorimetry):||17.200.10|
1.1 This guide covers suggested procedures for the operation of a calorimetric device designed to obtain temperature and pressure data as a function of time for systems undergoing a physicochemical change under nearly adiabatic conditions.
1.2 This guide outlines the calculation of thermodynamic parameters from the time, temperature, and pressure data recorded by a calorimetric device.
1.3 The assessment outlined in this guide may be used over a pressure range from full vacuum to the rated pressure of the reaction container and pressure transducer. The temperature range of the calorimeter typically varies from ambient to 500&176C, but also may be user specified (see 6.6).
1.4 This statement does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Specific safety precautions are outlined in Section 7.
