Abstract: We analyze twenty-five nearby metal-rich G and late-F dwarfs in order to verify whether the spectroscopic equilibrium (LTE) of iron lines satisfy the observational constraints imposed by the Infrared Flux Method (angular diameters) and Hipparcos parallaxes. The atmospheric parameters derived from iron lines (assuming LTE and employing 1D Kurucz model atmospheres) do not satisfy simultaneously both observational constraints, probably because classical modeling fails to reproduce the detailed line formation of FeI lines.
