Silicon carbide has been considered as a potential candidate for fuel cladding. Many studies have been conducted to investigate the steam oxidation of SiC at temperatures below 1600oC. However, the steam oxidation behavior of SiC at temperatures above 1600oC remained unclear due to the lack of test facilities. In this study, we investigated the steam oxidation of SiC at temperatures ranging from 1400-1800oC using a newly developed laser heating facility.
