The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of geometrical variations on the performance of plate-fin recuperator. Solutions for this problem are obtained via numerical approach. Three different types of plate-fin recuperator has been investigated; rectangular, rounded and bullet edges. This study has shown that rounded and bullet edges plate fin configuration exhibits 28 percent increase in surface heat transfer coefficient over its rectangular counterpart but there is no significant difference in the Fanning friction factor.
