Molecular Dynamics Simulation of MgO Melting at High Pressure
- Received Date: 2005-09-10
Abstract: Molecular dynamics simulation was used to study the melting of MgO at high pressures. The melting temperature of MgO was accurately obtained at elevated temperature and high pressure after corrections based on the modern theory of melting. The calculated melting curve was compared with the available experimental data and other theoretical results at the pressure range of 0-135 GPa. The corrected melting temperature of MgO is in good agreement with the results from Lindemann melting equation and the twophase simulated results below 15 GPa.
