Abstract : The patent application relates to an apparatus for increasing the flameholder capability in the thrust augmentor of a fanjet engine, having two rows of circumferentially spaced holes in the outer stator casing. Flow diverter vanes extend into the holds and intercept a portion of the hot gas from the last turbine rotor and direct the flow into the fan air channel leading to the augmentor. The holes in the two rows have different sizes to provide for different penetration into the cold fan air flow in the channel adjacent the outer stator casing.
