Abstract

In this study we obtain a T-P phase diagram of ice using the mean-field theory. We fit our calculated phase line equations to the experimental T-P phase diagram. By choosing appropriately the coefficients in the free-energy expansions, our calculated phase diagram agrees well with the experimentally observed phase diagram of ice. Some thermodynamic functions are calculated using the free energy for the transitions studied here.
