A numerical program has been written to treat a heat-flux DSC. The model operates in two modes. In the first,experimental
data is used as input and the enthalpy is calculated as a function of the sample temperature rather than the sample thermocouple
temperature. This allows accurate enthalpies and transition temperatures to be obtained without smearing.
In the second mode, enthalpy is used as an input and the responses of the calorimeter are calculated. Using this mode it is
possible to investigate the effects of sample size, heating rate and alloy composition. Non-equilibrium effects and difficulty
in nucleation can also be included.
