Abstract: Thermal analysis during solidification of ZA8 alloy against copper, hot die steel and stainless steel chills instrumented with thermocouples was carried out in the present work. The investigation showed that the chill material and coating had a significant effect on the cooling curve of the casting. When casting was solidified against chills, the liquidus and eutectic start temperature of the casting remained nearly the same whereas eutectoid transformation occurred at a higher temperature. Cooling rate curve of the casting solidified against coated chill indicated that formation of solid shell and subsequent re-melting in the case of high thermal conductivity coated chill whereas in lower thermal conductivity coated chill, the re-melting of solid shell was absent. It was found that chilling during solidification causes the morphology of dendrites transform to nearly rounded shape with refinement of lamellar eutectic.
