A transition section forms a continuous contour across a gap between a pair of structures. The transition section comprises at least one rib mounted within the gap and being pivotable relative to the structures. A tip may be mounted to an aft end of the rib and may be rotatable about a tip axis. A skin panel may extend between the structures and may at least partially cover the tip. The skin panel may be deformable during pivoting of the rib such that the tip may rotate into substantial alignment with the skin panel.
1. A transition section forming a continuous contour across a gap between a pair of structures which in use are subject to fluid flow, comprising: at least one rib mounted within the gap and being pivotable relative to the structures;a tip mounted to an end of the rib which is rotatable about a longitudinal axis of the rib; anda skin at least partially covering the tip and at least one structure, and being deformable during pivoting of the rib; the tip rotates about the longitudinal rib axis into substantial alignment with the skin in response to pivotin...
