Thanks - this one sounds a lot better than Ernst. I always thought Ernst is the best dictionary when it comes to technical engineering, but more and more I doubt it.

calorific value


Explanation:
andere Alternativen sind:
thermal value
heat value
energy value
Es geht immer um "Energieinhalt", die Ausdrücke werden in verschiedenen Fachbereichen verwendet.
"Gross calorific value" bezieht sich auf "oberen" Heizwert (Brennwert ho).
Ich würde daher nur "calorific value" verwenden.
