We have developed the system for the heat capacity measurement by the thermocouple in order to study the high pressure physical properties of the rare earth and actinide compounds. In this talk, we would like to show our system and discuss our recent results on the heavy fermion superconductors CePt$$_3$$Si and UIr. It is noted that the superconductivity of UIr was found by our group. There is no inversion center in crystal structures of both compounds. The superconductivity of both compounds might be the novel type. In the case of CePt$$_3$$Si, the antiferromagnetic phase is strongly suppressed by the applied pressure and disappears above 0.6 GPa, while the superconducting phase exists in the wide pressure region up to 1.5 GPa. It is found that the overall feature of the pressure phase diagram is different from those of other heavy fermion superconductors. In the case of UIr, it is suggested by the resistivity measurement under pressures that there exists multiple ferromagnetic phases in the high pressure region. We investigated the pressure phase diagram of UIr from the thermodynamic point of view. We discuss the relation between the superconductivity and magnetism in UIr.
