Calorimetry is key to getting an accurate measurement of power out of a LENR test. Ideally we will soon need little or no formal caolorimetry to know that a LENR heat source is producing well, but today, for research purposes, we need precise and accurate calorimeters. It sounds easy, but it is deceptively subtle and difficult. There are many approaches. Every approach has drawbacks and no calorimeter is perfect. How, then, do we rate a calorimeter? How can you compare one to another? What procedures and guidelines should one use to test a calorimeter?
Well, we intend to answer that question and write up some guidelines, and you can help. Feel free to review, post suggestions, or help edit. Your help will be greatly appreciated.
