This is the second report of a program dealing with the transient response of heat exchangers [1a], [1b]. Analog solutions are used to supplement some analytical solutions so as to provide fairly complete coverage for the heat exchangers encountered in gas-turbine plants. Because a gas flow exists on at least one side of the heat-transfer surface, these exchangers are characterized by a large wall-capacitance effect. Where greater generality is possible, the extension to other heat exchangers is indicated.
