The main methodological research results of the thermal conductivity of uranium dioxide (UO2) were considered. UO2 is the main fuel of modern nuclear energetic reactors. The assessment of efficiency of the proposed approximations compared to Fink-Ronchi formula at the theoretical values of UO2 density is proposed. According to this methodology we conducted the analysis of the experimental dependences of the thermal conductivity obtained by domestic authors.
