One of the When designing a new heat exchanger it is necessary to consider all the conditions imposed on the exchanger and its desired properties. Most often the investigation of heat transfer is to find heat surface. When applying exchanger for proposed hot air engine, it will be a counter-flow heat exchanger of gas - gas type. Gas, which transfers the heat will be exhaust gas from the combustion of biomass. An important step in the design and verification is to analyze exchanger designed using numerical methods, the verification of the correctness of design and verification of boundary conditions which include temperatures, flow rates and pressure drops. Due to the fact that the heat transfer in the heat exchanger is a three-dimensional plot and timeindependent, the system is described by partial differential equations that need to be solved by numerical methods.
