Abstract This report describes briefly the most frequently cited 'named' methods for kinetic analysis using thermo-analytical techniques. Some were developed for thermo-gravimetry and differential thermal analysis, but the concern here is only with their application to differential scanning calorimetry, a technique commonly employed by the Health and Safety Executive in investigating the exothermicities and decomposition of energetic materials.
