Hot crack formation during solidification was investigated during the peritectic reaction in steels. A series of in situ solidification experiments was performed using a MTS tensile testing machine combined with a mirror furnace. Sample temperature and force change were measured during the solidification process. The force measurements showed a sudden drop during the solidification of samples, which occurred around the peritectic temperature of the alloy, were accompanied by cracks or refilled cracks in the microstructure. Furthermore, the peritectic reaction types were studied theoretically and experimentally to understand their effects on the force change during solidification. The theoretical analyses showed that the volume change due to the peritectic transformation is one of the reasons for crack formation. In addition, when the peritectic reaction occurs in a diffusionless (partition less) manner in an alloy with sufficiently high primary precipitation, crack formation is more probable.
