Heat capacity & storage

Welcome to the home page for heat capacity of materials and their ability to store heat (heat storage).

This section present a lot of information on the ability of materials to store heat (specific heat capacity, latent heat) and on the ways to measure these quantities. There is a wealth of information on thermal analysis and calorimetry, including examples of the information in the evitherm database on specific heat capacity. All this and more can be found through searches conducted using the search headings provided at top left of the website menu, starting from Search and ending at Training.
