Thermodynamic behavior of nitrogen in the entire range of the Fe-Mn-Al-Si-C liquid solution was modeled based on the critical evaluation and optimization of all available experimental data. The Gibbs energy of liquid solution was described using the Modified Quasichemical Model (MQM) in the pair approximation, instead of classical Wagner Interaction Parameter Formalism, to consider the strong interactions between species in liquid state. In particular, the dissolution behavior of N and formation of AlN in the entire ternary and higher order liquids were accurately predicted from the MQM only with binary model parameters of N.
