Description / Abstract:

This test method covers the determination of mean specific heat of thermal insulating materials. The materials must be essentially homogeneous and composed of matter in the solid state.

This test method employs the classical method of mixtures. This provides procedures and apparatus simpler than those generally used in scientific calorimetry, an accuracy that is adequate for most thermal insulating purposes, and a degree of precision that is reproducible by laboratory technicians of average skill. While this test method was developed for testing thermal insulations, it is easily adaptable to measuring the specific heat of other materials.

The test procedure provides for a mean temperature of approximately 60°C (100 to 20°C temperature range), using water as the calorimetric fluid. By substituting other calorimetric fluids the temperature range may be changed as desired.

The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.

This standard 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.
