An accurate non-integral approximation of the Debye model for the heat capacity based on a segmentation in temperature and the linear combination of the Einstein functions is proposed. The approximation method delivers an accurate description of the Debye function and has been validated from mathematical and physical point of view. The method has been applied to the experimentally determined heat capacities of pure Al, Cr, Fe, Ge, Ir, Mo, Nb, Ta, W and Ni. The proposed non-integral solution is accurate for the entire temperature range and can easily be integrated into thermodynamic databases.
