A procedure to solve inverse heat conduction problem (IHCP) is to derive surface heat flux and temperature from temperature change inside a solid. The method proves to be very useful and powerful when a direct measurement of surface heat flux and temperature is difficult, owing to several working condition. The literature reviewed here discussion one dimensional inverse heat conduction problem. Procedure, criteria, methods and important results of other investigation are briefly discussed.
