The paper describes the fundamentals and applications of the thermal-dynamic
analogy method to analyze the course of heat effects occurring in calorimeters.
The method is based on introduction to the heat effect analysis of the terms,
notions and mathematical procedures used in the steering theory. It was pointed
out that this method can well be applied for elaboration of mathematical models
of various types of calorimeters. These models determine both the heat properties
of calorimeters as well as the dynamic ones.
