|Abstract:||The melting point of uranium dioxide, tungsten and graphite was measured as a function of the isostatic pressure up to 2000 bar, in a laser-heated autoclave filled with inert gas. The measured melting curves and their slopes were compared with the predictions obtained from the Clausius-Clapeyron equation and the existing thermochemical data of these substances. Whilst for tungsten and graphite the results show a reasonable agreement with the equilibrium thermodynamic calculation, the melting point of UO2 increases with the equilibrium thermodynamic calculation, the melting point of UO2 increases with pressure with a slope more than three times larger than expected.|
