The α γ phase equilibrium in the Fe-C system has been calculated over a wide temperature range by using a new Monte Carlo procedure which permits the chemical potentials of carbon and iron in both phases to be equalised in a single simulation. By-products of the calculation are estimates of the standard carbon potential and the nearest neighbour C-C pairwise interaction energy in both phases and the relative lattice stability of pure bcc and fcc iron.
