Abstract : This report describes an adiabatic calorimeter, with temperature controlling and measuring instrumentation, which has been developed for the determination of the specific heat of casting resins as a function of temperature over the range 30 to 16O deg. C. Results are presented for a number of typical casting resins. In some resins changes in specific heat values are observed wh1ch are indicative of second order transitions.
