The SNECMA Thrust Reverser System of Concorde's Prototypes 690412

The particular design of the SNECMA thrust reverser on Concorde results specifically from the general nacelle arrangement, and also from the exhaust system requirements. In this context, the author justifies the present arrangement of the SNECMA thrust reverser system.
He describes in detail the technological features and the tests completed, which allowed the thrust reverser system to meet performance, safety, airworthiness, and operational requirements for the flight development phase on the Concorde prototype.
In this respect, further consideration is given to the reliability and maintenance aspects, as an important feature of the design.
