The governing equations are simplified and the numerical solution is stabilized considerably if the entrained fluid heat capacity is "lumped" with the heat capacity of the matrix itself; therefore, this term is removed from the fluid energy equation but will be included in the regenerator energy equation.
In a practical AMRR design, the capacity of the entrained fluid may be equal to the matrix heat capacity.
