Zirconia is a kind of important ceramics materials. Because of its superior mechanical and electrical properties, zirconia, has been widely applied as both structural ceramics and functional ceramics. Based on a brief introduction on the progress and principle of calculation of phase diagram, the corresponding work on zirconia-containing systems in recent years was reviewed, and the results in some important systems were also summarized in detail. It was expected that the information of zirconia-containing phase diagrams based on the CALPHAD method would significantly promote the compositional design of zirconia ceramics.
