Abstract

Purpose

To evaluate assumptions relevance of an analytical heat flow model used in indirect measurement of heat capacity and thermal conductivity by the modulated calorimetry technique.

Design/methodology/approach

Assumptions are tested by comparing analytical prediction to numerical simulation results.

Findings

This study validates the analytical model for a solid sample.

Research limitations/implications

This research only focuses on solid samples.

Originality/value

This paper allows a broader study on the relevance of modulated calorimetry on liquid samples.
