The interest in heat capacity values of agricultural products resulted from work done by Otten (1974) on the thermal conductivity of such materials. The frequency response method used in that work required accurate values of heat capacity. A survey of the literature clearly showed a considerable lack of reliable data it was therefore decided to initiate an experimental study to verify and complement the literature data. After considering the various types of calorimeters available, the continuous adiabatic calorimeter was selected. It is relatively easy to design, construct and operate furthermore, it can be used for a wide variety of products with sufficient accuracy. The first attempt at producing an accurate continuous adiabatic calorimeter was successful and was described by Otten and Ezeike (1976). Much was learned from the initial experiments and a second apparatus was designed and tested by Samaan (1978).
