Abstract: A method was proposed and a calculation of the ZrO2 content in the (NaCl-KCl)equiv-UO2Cl2-ZrCl4 melt for different values of current density (0.08-0.63 A/cm2) and the ZrCl4 concentration (0-12.3wt%) was carried out on the base of  known composition for one UO2-ZrO2 cathode deposit.  A qualitative and satisfactory quantitative accordance of calculated and experimental values of the ZrO2 content in the UO2-ZrO2 cathode deposits was established.
