Abstract : A flameholder in an afterburner incorporates an improved mixer which includes a small duct for capturing a small percent of hot gas stream flow and routing the same outwardly along the gutter of the flameholder for producing a localized increase of the air temperature in the cool fan air stream flow. The mixer also includes a deflector plate for deflecting the hot gas exiting from the duct into the cool air stream flow.
