Atomistic Monte-Carlo simulations of precipitation and B2 ordering in a binary alloy on a BCC lattice via vacancy mechanism are presented. Evolution of simulated patterns is in good agreement with the experimentally observed morphologies. Moreover, it is observed that the very early stages of ordering are strongly dependent on atomic mobility parameters. Depending on the relative exchange frequency of vacancies with A and B atoms, two extreme regimes of ordering are identified, leading either to localized or delocalized ordering.
