Source term evaluation is important in legislation for the licensing of a plant. So a comprehensive review of historical progress in source term analysis and source term experimental programs have been presented for better understanding of core melt progression and fission product behavior under severe accident. The discussions mainly focus on the advancement in source term and comparison between source term experimental programs. For In-vessel and Ex-vessel source term estimation, simulated and design based experiments had been performed. Most of the experiments have been performed to understand the behavior and analysis of radionuclides during different accident consequences. Data obtained from these tests have been used for validation of Computer based codes. This study gives a comprehensive review of the source term and the source term experimental programs designed for investing the source term and fission product release behavior.
