The structural and dynamic properties of silica melts under high pressure are studied using molecular dynamics (MD) computer simulation. The interactions between the ions are modeled by a pairwise-additive potential, the so-called CHIK potential, that has been recently proposed by Carre et al. The experimental equation of state is well-reproduced by the CHIK model. With increasing pressure (density), the structure changes from a tetrahedral network to a network containing a high number of five- and six-fold Si-O coordination. In the partial static structure factors, this change of the structure with increasing density is reflected by a shift of the first sharp diffraction peak towards higher wavenumbers q, eventually merging with the main peak at densities around 4.2 g/cm^3. The self-diffusion constants as a function of pressure show the experimentally-known maximum, occurring around a pressure of about 20 GPa.
