During a nuclear power plant Severe Accident, complex boron melts can be formed, due to interaction of the control rods with the cladding materials. These can affect ultimately the source term assessment. This review will describe the results of previous studies on boron carbide/stainless steel/Zircaloy (B4C/SS/Zry) melts, which will finally provide guidance for the needs of future experiments. This review showed that models for the behavior of complex B4C/SS/Zry melts are limited, and unsuccessful in simulating core degradation, thus the improvement of the database for B4C/SS/Zry melts is needed. Our experimental plan aims in providing thermodynamics and kinetics models for such melts, with the final aim of improving boron modelling in SA codes analysis and of understanding its effect on fission products behavior.
