The major considerations in the selection, design and development of a rotary regenerator for a vehicular gas turbine are discussed. The performance results, such as effectiveness, pressure loss and leakage of the regenerator in the General Motors Research GT-305 gas-turbine engine are presented in detail. A method for evaluating new heat-exchanger surfaces and the techniques used in developing the regenerator are also included.
