Proceedings of the Workshop on Techniques for Measurement of Thermodynamic Properties, Albany, Oregon, August 21-23, 1979.
To improve communication among government, industry, and academic researchers in the field of thermodynamics, the federal Bureau of Mines sponsored a workshop on techniques for measurement of thermodynamic properties in August 1979. Participants at the workshop presented 33 papers on the subjects of temperature measurement and control, general calorimetric techniques, low- temperature calorimetry, high-temperature calorimetry, galvanic cells, ionic solutions, and heterogeneous phase equilibria. A special invited lecture was presented by E. F. Westrum, Jr., On the resolution of lattice heat capacity. This information circular comprises the proceedings of the workshop and includes the texts of papers presented and discussion by attendees.
