Abstract By using data mainly from Frolovet al. (1982) for four Delta Scuti stars in eclipsing binary systems, AB Cas, Y Cam, RS Cha, and AI Hya, their physical parameters, distances, and radial pulsation modes are determined. The evolutionary track systems of Iben (1967), Paczyński (1970), and Maeder and Meynet (1988) are interpolated, in order to estimate evolutionary massesM eand agest of these variables. Their pulsation massesM Qare estimated from the fitting formulae of Faulkner (1977) and Fitch (1981). Our estimates of evolutionary massesM eand pulsation massesM Qare close to the massesM determined by Frolovet al. (1982) from the star binarity. The only exception is AB Cas, for which there is no agreement between certain star parameters. Another, independent approach is also applied to the stars RS Cha and AI Hya: by using their photometric indicesb — y andc 1 from the catalogue of López de Cocaet al. (1990) and appropriate photometric calibrations, other sets of physical parameters, distances, modes, ages, evolutionary and pulsation masses of both variables are obtained.
