The phase equilibria and thermodynamic properties of the Mg-Ca-Zn ternary system were analyzed and a complete thermodynamic description of the system was obtained using a computerized optimization procedure. Based on the experimental data, one ternary intermetallic compound was considered for the model, while another ternary intermetallic compound was speculated. The calculated results were compared with the experimental data in the literature.
