A phenomenological calculation of phase equilibria by combining the cluster variation method (CVM) with the Lennard-Jones-type (L-J-type) pairwise atomic interaction energies has been attempted for the Fe-Pd-Ni ternary system in order to examine the possibility of Ni as the substituting element for Pd. The calculated Ni content in an Fe-Pd-based L10 ordered phase at 863 K shows fairly good agreement with the experimental analysis performed for Fe-5Pd-5Ni alloy by energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy of a transmission electron microscope. The detailed calculation indicates that Ni is preferentially substituted in a Pd site in the L10-ordered phase, which can be interpreted by the Lennard-Jones-type pairwise potentials employed for the present study. It is concluded from the thermodynamic point of view that Ni is a promising candidate as the substituting element for Pd in an Fe-Pd-based L10 ordered phase.
