Thermal analysis is a classical method of determining phase diagrams and can be used to analyze the deviation from solidification under equilibrium conditions. This article discusses the use of thermal analysis in industrial processes and in research. It describes the theoretical basis of simplified and differential thermal analysis. Techniques for determining liquidus and solidus temperatures using cooling curves are also discussed.
