The Bredig transition to the superionic phase indicated with the.-peak in C-p was highly expected for plutonium dioxide (PuO2) as other actinide dioxides. However, least-square fit and local smoothing techniques applied to the experimental enthalpy data of PuO2 in 1980s could not detect a.-peak in specific heat that might be due to too scattered and insufficient experimental data. Therefore, this issue has not been yet put beyond the doubts. In the current article, a superionic model of PuO2 is developed with partially ionic model of a rigid ion potential. Thermophysical properties were calculated in constant pressure-temperature ensemble using molecular dynamics simulation. The Bredig transition with vicinity of a lambda-peak in specific heat was successfully observed for the model system at about 2,100 K. Moreover, the experimental enthalpy change was well reproduced before and after the estimated transition temperature.
