A thermodynamic model developed earlier in the present laboratory for oxidic melts was applied to some multicomponent systems, namely CaO-FeO-MgO-SiO2, Al2O3-CaO-MgO-SiO2, Al2O3-FeO-MnO-SiO2, and Al2O3-CaO-FeO-MgO-MnO-SiO2. Model calculations were carried out using only the parameters corresponding to the binary systems, which, in turn, were based on the available thermodynamic information for these systems. The predicted thermodynamic activities of the component oxides in higher order systems were compared with the experimental data published in the literature. In general, the agreement between the model predictions and the experimental values was found to be satisfactory within the limits of experimental uncertainties and limitations of the model calculations. Examples of model predictions for some typical slag compositions, relevant to the Swedish steel industry and used in the blast furnace, electric arc furnace, and ladle furnace are also presented.
