The operation of the symmetric counterflow regenerative heat exchanger is described for conditions under which the thermal capacitance of the contained fluid cannot, as is the usual case, be set equal to zero. The solution of the system equations is found by use of the Laplace transform method. The thermal effectiveness is presented for a range of parameters believed to cover most applications of the symmetric regenerator.
