The measurement of the volume shrinkage due to solidification of 67 kinds of Cd base bearing alloys, such as Cd-Ni, Cd-Ag, Cd-Cu, Cd-Hg, Cd-Ag-Cu, Cd-Ni-Hg, Cd-Ni-Cu and Cd-Hg-Cu, was carried out. The additional elements in these alloys varied from 1 to 10%. The specific volume of melt and solid of these alloys at various temperatures was measured by means of a specially designed pycnometer made of pyrex glass and also a by dilatometer, and the temperature of beginning and ending of the solidification was determined by thermal analysis, From these results, the volume shrinkage due to solidificatien was calculated.
Following alloys showed low volume shrinkage.
