DSC method (Differential Scanning Calorimetry) is one of the thermal analysis methods which is suitable for studying the thermodynamic properties of metallic systems. In this work the heat capacities of real steel grade in the solid phase under strictly defined conditions for controlled heating were studied. The paper deals with the investigation of real steel grade in the solid phase under strictly defined conditions for controlled heating. Heat capacity of steel was obtained using high-temperature calorimeter Setaram MHTC 96 (Multi High Temperature Calorimeter) with 3D DSC sensor. Experimentally acquired heat capacity („Apparent Heat Capacities“) of real steel grade was confronted with the calculated theoretical data (software Thermo-Calc) and with data reported in the available literature.Keywords: DSC, heat capacity, steel, thermal analysis, Thermo-Calc
