Correlation of heat transfer coefficients for air flow through the regenerator constructed from randomly paked spheres is reported for the symmetric-balanced mode of operation. The experimental results have been correlated by the least square regression has been obtained.The present correlation has been compared with the heat transfer coefficient correlations in the literature.
