The concept of “ordering or alloying potential” (J. Hafneri: from Hamiltonians to phase diagrams: Springer Berlin 1987 and R. N. Singh and F. Sommerii Rep. Prog. Phys. 60 (1997) 57–150) enables the understanding of the different kind of alloys: hetero-coordinated one’s leading to compounds, homocoordinated ones leading to miscibility gap systems and substitutional alloys. The ordering potential is based on the comparison of identical atom interionic potentials (V11 and V22) and different atom interionic potential (V12) It allows the description of the demixing properties of some alloys. In order to understand the concepts, we developed our calculations by using a Lennard-Jones potential, the atomic structure being calculated by molecular dynamics simulation. We obtained surprising and unexpected results putting in evidence the time of simulation and the strength of the ordering potential.
