We consider the influence of the deconfinement phase transition on gravitational waves (GW) emitted in a binary neutron star merger. We perform 3D hydrodynamic simulations based on the conformally flat approximation to general relativity and the GW signal extracted up to quadrupole order. We vary the initial constituent masses of the binary by use of physically-motivated equations of state (EoS) at zero temperature in two ways - allowing stellar matter to undergo or not the hadron-quark phase transition.
