This book considers various methods of experimental study of thermal and caloric properties of pure substances and binary mixtures in wide ranges of the variation of independent variables, including the near critical region. Its 350 pages contain the results of experiments that are the principal source of information for the great majority of properties of the most common substances and materials. Experimental methods of determining thermodynamic properties of pure substances and binary mixtures in wide parameters' ranges including near-critical regions are considered. A brief survey of equipment designed in various laboratories in the former Soviet Union is given; the main units of the equipment, their characteristics, and the experimental procedures are described. Containing over 100 tables and figures, and exhaustively researched (over 500 references are listed), this monograph is addressed to both theorists and experimenters working in the fields of molecular physics, chemical technology, and power engineering, as well as researchers, lecturers, postgraduates, and students.
