The thermodynamic properties of the ternary CoFeGd system are investigated, based on the three binary systems, i.e. CoFe system by Fernández Guillermet, and CoGd and FeGd from the present work. The assessment is carried out by means of the computer programs parrot and thermo-calc, using models for the Gibbs energy of individual phases. The ternary system contains eight different intermetallic compounds and they are all treated as line compounds. Good agreement is obtained between the calculation and experimental results in the two binary systems and the ternary system.
