Phase formation was investigated via thermodynamic calculations of the Al-Si-Fe system within the range of commercial compositions with additions of Mn as a quaternary element. The calculations were performed using a commercial aluminum thermodynamic database and were compared with experimental data on sand casting from the literature. Both equilibrium and Scheil-Gulliver models were analyzed. The results showed that by adding Mn to the alloy it was possible to favor the formation of the Chinese script alpha-Al-15(Fe,Mn)(3)Si-2 intermetallic instead of the harmful platelet-shaped beta-Al5SiFe. Furthermore, the calculations indicated that with higher amounts of Mn, the beta-Al5SiFe intermetallic can be formed via a solid-state reaction, while alpha-Al-15(Fe,Mn)(3)Si-2 becomes the primary phase to form from the melt (also known as ``sludge{''} in the aluminum foundry industry). A relationship between Fe and Mn contents was identified that can prevent the formation of the beta-Al5SiFe intermetallic. (AU)
