A variable area turbine nozzle includes a plurality of circumferentially adjoining nozzle segments. Each nozzle segment includes outer and inner bands, with a plurality of first vane segments fixedly joined therebetween. A plurality of second vane segments adjoin respective ones of the first vane segments to define therewith corresponding vanes which are spaced apart to define respective throats of minimum flow area for channeling therethrough combustion gas. The second vane segments are pivotable to selectively vary the throat area.
[ We claim:] [1.] A variable area turbine nozzle segment comprising:outer and inner spaced apart bands;a plurality of first vane segments extending between said bands and fixedly joined thereto;a plurality of second vane segments adjoining respective ones of said first vane segments to define therewith corresponding vanes, said vanes being spaced apart from each other to define a throat of minimum flow area for channeling therethrough combustion gas; andmeans for pivoting said second vane segments to vary said throat area, and including two hinge joints ...
