We report here the results of a statistical analysis of 28 [FORMULA] Scuti stars from five open clusters, [FORMULA] Persei, Pleiades, Hyades, Praesepe and Coma. These [FORMULA] Scuti variables, most of which are on the main sequence, tend to show a positive correlation between oscillation amplitude and absolute luminosity. No correlation is found between amplitude and effective temperature.

Key words: Galaxy: open clusters and associations: general – stars: variables: ffi Sct – stars: statistics – stars: oscillations – stars: fundamental parameters
