The earlier-developed master equation approach is used to study kinetic features of alloy orderings with more than two types of ordered domains. We develop a kinetic cluster field method being a kinetic analogue of the known cluster variation method, and present a microscopical model for deformational interactions in concentrated alloys. The described methods are used for extensive simulations of various phase transformations involving D03, L12 and L10 orderings. The simulations reveal a number of interesting microstructural effects, many of them agreeing well with experimental observations.
