The solidification process was investigated in brass alloys containing a wide range of zinc, between 32.5 and 47.1 wt-%. A series of solidification experiments was performed under different cooling rates using differential thermal analysis (DTA) and a confocal mirror furnace. The cooling rate and the solidification under cooling temperature were evaluated from cooling curves. Furthermore, the peritectic reaction was studied in view of the starting and the ending temperatures and shrinkage behaviour. The volume change was measured in the peritectic alloys using a dilatometer which was developed to investigate the melting and solidification processes. A theoretical analysis was developed to evaluate the volume change effect on the peritectic reaction.
