We expect that if the pipeline segment is conveying a fluid and an eventual situation calls for the valve to be closed or the pump/compressor shut-off, an entrained fluid, be it hot, cold, pressurized, or otherwise, will be trapped in the pipe.
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.
