Turbine vane construction

Image Number 2 for United States Patent #4163629.

A variable area turbine vane, for use in high temperature aircraft gas turbines, having a load carrying spar with a heat shield member surrounding the load carrying member. The heat shield member is positioned in grooves which permit spanwise and cordwise expansion of the heat shield member. Cooling air enters the hollow load bearing member and passes through holes in the load bearing member and heat shield member.
