A complete literature review, critical evaluation, and thermodynamic modeling of the phase diagrams and thermodynamic properties of all oxide phases in the MgO-Al2O3, CaO-MgO-Al2O3, and MgO-Al2O3-SiO2 systems at 1 bar total pressure are presented. Optimized model equations for the thermodynamic properties of all phases are obtained that reproduce all available thermodynamic and phase equilibrium data within experimental error limits from 25 °C to above the liquidus temperatures at all compositions. The database of the model parameters can be used along with software for Gibbs energy minimization to calculate all thermodynamic properties and any type of phase diagram section. The modified quasichemical model was used for the liquid slag phase and sublattice models, based upon the compound energy formalism, were used for the spinel, pyroxene, and monoxide solid solutions. The use of physically reasonable models means that the models can be used to predict thermodynamic properties and phase equilibria in composition and temperature regions where data are not available.
