Abstract : The abstract discloses an attachment arrangement in a combustion chamber of a gas turbine powerplant, having a double wall structure formed by a separate combustor shell and at least one floatwall panel. The arrangement includes a pair of hook-like projections protruding from the panel and through the shell and a pair of thin plates for interengaging the hook-like projections on one side of the shell opposite to the other side thereof which faces the panel. Each of the hook-like projections has an outer portion spaced from the one side of the shell and extending generally parallel thereto. Each of the plates is tapered in cross section for adapting each plate to be fitted in a wedged condition between the outer portion of one of the projections and the one side of the shell to retain the panel in a desired predetermined position adjacent to the shell. Also, the plates are rigidly connected to the shell and to one another.
