Based on the theory of determining heat values using an oxygen bomb combustion method, a data analysis system for oxygen bomb combustion was developed using MATLAB visual programming technology. This system can analyze data for the combustion and enthalpy of the decomposition for organic materials, the enthalpy of formation of volatile liquid materials such as gasoline, aviation kerosene, alcohol, and benzene, as well as for materials having lower heat values such as honey and ethanol, and even complex solid materials such as coal, sludge, waste, architectural materials, and concrete. This new data analysis system can very accurately determine the temperature variation in combustion, and then display the interrelated data on a display screen. Practical mathematical models and methods are listed in the paper. Our research will prove valuable for developing new applications for oxygen bomb technology and solving practical problems involving thermodynamics.
