Regenerators have been proposed to increase thermal cycle efficiency of gas turbine power plants which are being considered for installation in certain classed of United States Navy ships. These regenerators are to preheat intake air and are currently designed as compact heat exchangers. The recommended heat exchanger configurations are either counterflow or crossflow. This analysis considers only the counterflow configuration. Some of the structural problems associated with rectangular, compact heat exchanger design are discussed and certain structural design parameters are determined analytically. A digital computer program is presented for the analysis of the pressure effects in an idealized, two-dimensional, rectangular heat exchanger. This program is written for a matrix analysis of an idealized heat exchanger with a cross section analogous to a multi-story building frame. This investigation was conducted by Robert L. Corbett and David W. Stubbs during the period from December 1965 to May 1966, at the United States Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, California.
