The oxidation of silicon carbide at high temperatures from 673.15 to 2173.15 K is investigated by using thermodynamic equilibrium calculations and a mass transfer model. The dominant reaction of the active-to-passive transition and five other dominant reactions, which are in six different temperature regions, have been determined according to the main equilibrium products. Then, a modified Wagner's model has been developed to determine the active-to-passive transition boundary by combining mass transport and thermodynamic calculations. The present theoretical calculations satisfactorily explained the reported experimental and theoretical data. The influence of flow rate on the active-to-passive transition boundary has been explained using our model. The rate controlling mechanism of the oxidation at the active-to-passive transition point is proposed.
