Calcium aluminosilicates CaO Al2O3 SiO2 (CAS) with compositions (CaO SiO2)x(Al2O3)1-x for x < 0.5 and (Al2O3)x(SiO2)1-x for x < 0.5 are studied using density functional theory molecular dynamics modelling. Simulated structure factors are found to have an excellent agreement with experiment. Local atomic structures from simulations reveal the role of calcium cations as a network modifier and aluminium cations as a non-tetrahedral network former. Distributions of tetrahedral order show that an increasing concentration of the network former Al increases entropy, while an increasing concentration of the network modifier Ca decreases entropy. The two-body correlation entropy S2 is found to not correlate with reference excess entropy values obtained from thermochemical databases, while the inclusion of a three-body orientational correlation such as tetrahedral order, O-M-O or M-O-M bond angle show a clear linear correlation between computed entropy and reference excess entropy. The possible relationship between atomic structures and excess entropy is discussed.
