The older RB211-524C/D found on the B747-200/300 has zero mixing, but the newer RB211-524G/H found on the B747-400 and the B767-300 does mix the bypass and core flows before exhaustion. >On engines with mixers, i.e. >the fan and core streams are mixed and ejected through a common final >nozzle like ROLLS RB211-535E4 mixing numbers can be of the order of 70% >with a well designed mixer.
