Aims.The detection of pulsation modes is the first step in the asteroseismological study of the star. Further, the calculation of the orbital parameters of the binary system allows us to make a dynamical determination of the mass of the star, which works as an important constraint to test and calibrate the asteroseismological models.
Methods.We performed a detailed frequency analysis of 210 hours of photometric data of HD 172189 obtained from the STEPHI XIII campaign.
Results.We have identified six pulsation frequencies with a confidence level of 99% and a seventh with a 65% confidence level of 65%, in the range between 100-300 μHz. In addiction, three eclipses were observed during the campaign, allowing us to improve the determination of the orbital period of the system.
