### Abstract

Using a method similar to the thermodynamic theory of almost completely ordered alloys an expression for the elastic mismatch energy of an ordered alloy as a function of the long-range order parameter, η, is derived from the continuum elastic theory. It is shown that, similarly to the chemical ordering energy in Bragg-Williams approximation, this has a simple (1 - η^{2})-type dependence. It is illustrated by detailed calculations that the relation obtained can also be derived requiring that the slope of the elastic mismatch energy at η = 0 should be equal to zero. Is is also shown that the expression proposed for the elastic mismatch energy of a (disordered) solid solution in the Miedema-model contains the interactions between the image elastic fields as well and can be considered to be on the same level of approximation as our result. The maximum elastic energy which can be stored during a disordering process is compared to the elastic mismatch energy of the solid solution (at the same atomic fraction). It is concluded that the differences between the above values are comparable to the differences obtained by using uncorrected volumes for the atoms and holes or using corrected values of them according to the Miedema-model.
