The Al-Fe system is important for many alloys and the new interest in iron aluminides makes it necessary to improve the modeling of the different ordered forms on the body-centered cubic lattice in this system. This has now been done using a four-sublattice model based on the compound energy formalism, which can describe disordered A2 and the B2, D 03 and B32 ordering. The chemical and ferromagnetic ordering transitions can be both first and second-order and they have a strong interaction. Almost all available experimental and theoretical data for all phases in the system have been fitted within estimated uncertainties.
