View the Complete Application at the US Patent & Trademark Office
A cooling arrangement (100), including: a substrate having a pocket (24) defined by a rib side surface (28) and a bottom surface (26); a feature (112) formed in the rib side surface; and an impingement plate (102). In an installed configuration (116) a resilience of the impingement plate enables an interference between the impingement plate and the feature that locks the impingement plate in an installed position (118). An elastic compression of the impingement plate from the installed configuration eliminates the interference.
