A variable geometry nozzle for a gas turbine engine in which a circumferential array of flaps are pivotally connected to the engine by their upstream ends, the flaps comprising interdigitated flexible and rigid flaps. The geometry of the nozzle is varied by drawing together the side edges of adjacent flexible flaps which causes pivoting of both the rigid and flexible flaps and a change in the curvature of the flexible flaps. The rigid flaps seal the spaces between the side edges of adjacent flexible flaps. A modification is shown using auxiliary radially...
A gas turbine engine having a nozzle wherein a plurality of flaps are pivotable about their upstream ends and cooperate to vary the geometry of the nozzle the flaps comprising at least three relatively flexible flaps forming the greater part of the nozzle circumference and interdigitated with relatively rigid flaps, the axially extending free side edges of respective adjacent relatively flexible flaps being connected together by means for producing relatively circumferential movement between said free side edges of the flexible flaps and the relatively r...
