Abstract

With the use of the significant structure theory of liquid, the fusion criteria has been successfully explained. To test the theory of fusion, the excess volume upon melting has been calculated for some liquids such as simple liquids and fused salts. The results obtained show good agreements between theory and experiment. The theoretical study on the fused salt may be useful to understand the properties and structure of high temperature liquids in the atomic reactor.
