Isothermal and non-isothermal kinetics of three dimensional growth processes from nuclei pre-existing on surface of infinite
plate specimen have been derived. Some useful and interesting relations have been found, and methods for kinetic analysis
of experimental data are proposed.
The kinetic compensation effect observed in heterogeneous non-isothermal kinetics is only an apparent effect. In general,
the correlation derived between the kinetic parameters E and log A from TG curves can be described by means of a non-linear
compensation law, expressed by Eq. (14). This equation may become approximately linear in certain particular cases, i.e. it
may change into an isokinetic relation. The validity of the non-linear compensation law has been tested by using over 1000
sets of kinetic parameters reported earlier.
The non-isothermal kinetics of precipitation of an Al-12.6 mass% Mg alloy for different heating rates were studied using thermal
expansion techniques. The structural changes associated with the precipitation of the and b phases were identified. The conversion
degree of each phase was associated with the area under the derivative curve of the thermal expansion with respect to temperature.
Using the Kissinger relation and an iso-conversional method we calculated the apparent activation energies associated with
formation of the precipitated phases. We report an increasing dependence of the activation energy on the conversion degree,
the values obtained being within the range reported in the literature.
In this research, non-isothermal kinetics and feasibility study of medium grade crude oil is studied in the presence of a
limestone matrix. Experiments were performed at a heating rate of 10°C min−1, whereas the air flow rate was kept constant at 50 mL min−1 in the temperature range of 20 to 600°C (DSC) and 20 to 900°C (TG). In combustion with air, three distinct reaction regions
were identified in all crude oil/limestone mixtures, known as low temperature oxidation (LTO), fuel deposition (FD) and high
temperature oxidation (HTO). The activation energy values were in the order of 5–9 kJ mol−1 in LTO region and 189–229 kJ mol−1 in HTO region. It was concluded that the medium grade crude oil field was not feasible for a self-sustained combustion process.

Thermogravimetry (TG/DTG) coupled with evolved gas analysis (MS detection) of volatiles was used to characterize the thermal
behavior of commercial PVC cable insulation material during heating in the range 20-800C in air and nitrogen, respectively.
In addition, simultaneous TG/FTIR was used to elucidate chemical processes that caused the thermal degradation of the sample.
A good agreement between results of the methods was found. The thermal degradation of the sample took place in three temperature
ranges, namely 200-340, 360-530 and 530-770C. The degradation of PVC backbone started in the range 200-340C accompanied
by the release of HCl, H2O, CO2 and benzene. The non-isothermal kinetics of thermal degradation of the PVC cable insulation in the temperature range 200-340C
was determined from TG results measured at heating rates of 1.5, 5, 10, 15 and 20 K min-1 in nitrogen and air, respectively. The activation energy values of the thermal degradation process in the range 200-340C
of the PVC cable insulation sample were determined from TG results by ASTM method.

Two integral isoconversional methods (Flynn–Wall–Ozawa and
Kissinger–Akahira–Sunose) and the invariant kinetic parameters
method (IKP) were used in order to examine the kinetics of the non-isothermal
crystallisation of a silica-soda-lead glass. The objective of the paper is
to show the usefulness of the IKP method to determine both the activation
parameters and the kinetic model of the investigated process. Thismethod associated
with the criterion of coincidence of kinetic parameters for all heating rates
and some procedures of the evaluation of the parameter from Johnson–Mehl–Avrami–Erofeev–Kolmogorov
(JMAEK) equation led us to the following kinetic triplet: activation energy, E=170.5±2.5 kJ mol–1
, pre-exponential factor, A=1.178±0.350·10
10 min–1 and JMAEK model (Am) m=1.5.
A new method is reported for the evaluation of non-isothermal kinetic data for various forms of the conversion function. The
algorithm is based on a pseudo-inverse matrix method. A description of the algorithm and some calculation examples are presented.

The validity of isoconversional methods used to evaluate the activation energy is discussed. The authors have shown that the Flynn-Wall-Ozawa and Friedman methods give results that agree with each other only if the activation energy does not change with the degree of conversion. A criterion for the reaction mechanism as expressed by the differential conversion function is suggested too.
