STP 1402 examines the latest dynamic and modulated thermal analytical techniques, including new interpretations and applications of Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC). The basis of many DSC methods is the modulation of temperature along with varying other parameters. Dynamic methods, including Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (DMA) and Dielectric Thermal Analysis (DETA), are also critiqued with new innovative applications. The mode of modulation, a sinusoidal wave or a saw tooth curve, affords the thermal analyst an opportunity to study a physical or chemical change in greater detail.
