We have developed a simple model to address the melting of corundum (Al2O3). For this simple model, a critical volume representative for the melting point was determined, and by employing the relation between thermal pressure and temperature, the melting point of corundum at high pressure conditions can be obtained. This study indicates that a good agreement exists between our calculation, experimental results, and two-phase molecular dynamics simulations for corundum (Al2O3).
