Thermodynamic modelling is a powerful tool for predicting and understanding the behaviour of vcirious systems. There are many thermoanalytical techniques such as thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), high resolution thermogravimetric analysis (HiResTM TGA), derivative thermogravimetry (DTG), differential thermal analysis (DTA), calorimetry, differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), modulated differential scanning calorimetry (MDSC), dynamic mechnical analysis (DMA), the rmomechanical analysis (TMA), thermodilatometry (TD), dielectric thermal analysis (DEA), optical transmittance thermal analysis (OTTA), evolved gas analysis (EGA), ji-thermal analysis (uTA), isothermal pressure transducer analysis (ITPTA), transient thermal analysis (TTA) and thermal conductivity (k). Simultaneous thermal analysis (STA) is ideal for investigating issues such as the glass transition of modified glasses, binder burnout, dehydration of ceramic materials or decomposition behaviour of inorganic building materials, also with gas analysis. Thermodynamic modeling and various thermoanalytical techniques and their applications from medicine to construction have been discussed in this paper.
