The liquidus projection and the invariant reactions associated with the liquid phase in the Zr-Si-Al ternary system were experimentally determined. Seventeen primary phase regions were identified from metallographic observation and analysis of the as-cast microstructures. There are at least sixteen invariant reactions and three local maxima associated with congruent melting in the ternary system. The ZrSi primary solidification region covers a wide range of compositions in the Zr-Si-Al ternary system. A variety of the solidification paths were described.
