Reproducibility of the output signal in Differential Scanning Calorimeter has been examined in detail. The ordinate calibration factor has been found to diminish at higher temperatures. Calibration factor for enthalpy output has also been evaluated. A procedure for calibrating the area by the proper selection of the base-line for both scanning and isothermal modes of operation has been described. This factor has largely been ignored in the papers published so far. And also the assessment of the performance of Thermomechanical analyser has been done by using AI as expansion standard varying heating rate, sensitivity and load. A simple method for the determination Youngs modulus at room temperature using TMA is also given.
