Unidirectional solidification of Zn–1.5wt.% Cu peritectic alloy was carried out with the Bridgman method by using metals of  99.99% purity under the argon atmosphere and two different conditions; with a temperature gradient (G) range of 1.99-7.81 K mm-1 at constant growth rate (V) and a growth rate range of 8.41-661.11 mm s-1 at a constant temperature gradient. The microstructures of the directionally solidified Zn–1.5wt.% Cu peritectic samples were observed to be a cellular. From both transverse and longitudinal sections of the samples, cellular spacing (l) and cell tip radius (R) were measured and expressed as functions of solidification processing parameters (G and V) using a linear regression analysis. The experimental results were also compared with values calculated according to the current theoretical and numerical models, and similar previous experimental results.
