the subject of thrust reversers is simple.

a 727uses a variation of the clam shell. " but some of the new noise
abaitement stuff is different" but the 727 uses as you put it a type of
cascade vanes to direct the flow of air. if you are still interested the
two main types of tr's are exhoust like the 727 and fan air like the
dc10.

i dont know of any sites that explain how they work but you may try an
aviation encyclopedia
