[R] Accumulating data row by row into a data frame

After the overwhelming response to my last question (many thanks!),
I cannot resist to ask the next maybe trivial question:

All sources I have looked into tell me about building data frames
by reading from files or by putting vectors of data ("column by column")
Now I would like to create an (empty) data frame with "headings" for
every column (column titles) and then put data row-by-row into this
data frame (one row for every computation I will be doing), i.e. I
want to create kind of a "table" and fill it with data:

no. time temp pressure <---the headings
1   0     100   80     <---first result
2   10    110   87     <---2nd result .....

Is a data frame the best solution for this, anyway?
