Potential for Fe-Fe interaction

I am using AlSiMgCuFe.meam potential for simulating an iron plate. However, I have observed that the iron plate appears to be melting at a temperature as low as 600K (Al-Si-Mg also there in the system but its not melting), which seems highly unlikely. I would like to confirm whether I am using the correct potential.


You will have to carefully study the publication that describes this potential and determine if it was designed and tested to model bulk iron.
