Topology optimization is proving to be a valuable design tool for physical systems, espe-cially for structural systems. However, its application in the field of heat transfer is less evident but is constantly progressing. In this chapter, we would like to introduce topol-ogy optimization in the context of heat exchanger design to the general reader. We also provide a chronological review of available literature to see the current progress of topol-ogy optimization in the field of heat transfer and heat exchanger design. We expect that topology optimization will prove to be a valuable tool in heat exchanger design for the coming years.
