Paper describes influence of grain refining and of modification on feeding behavior of Al – alloys. Research was made with the AlSi9Cu3 alloy. Three samples of basic, grain refined, and modified alloy were cast by the newly developed method for determining susceptibility to shrinkage and into the Quick cup measuring cells for simple thermal analyses which were simultaneously done with all these samples. Castings were then analyzed with X-raying, density measurements, visually observed and metallographically examined. Also grain size was determined with light microscopy and polarized light.
