The paper deals with a design of a regenerator of Stirling engine with unconventional mechanism of engine FIK. The final design of the regenerator is based on previous simulations of flowing of a working fluid, created in software Fluent. The paper presents basic requirements to be followed in the design of the regenerator. The contribution also contains a dimensional computation of the regenerator, which describes basic procedures and boundary conditions in the computation of the designed shape of the regenerator.
