This paper presents a review of literature on the transient response of single-pass parallel, counter and cross-flow heat exchangers. The discussion will be focused on direct transfer type heat exchangers with a step change in inlet temperature. Different predicting schemes will be evaluated for their suitable range of operation and specific recommendations will be made regarding their suitability to types of problems.
