This distance is called swirl decay distance, as shown in Figure 6 with the letter 'g'.
(a) Nozzle inlet diameter (mm) 15.0 (b) Nozzle throat diameter (mm) 1.0 (c) Nozzle outlet diameter (mm) 1.7 (d) Nozzle convergent part length (mm) 9.9 (e) Nozzle divergent part length(mm) 40.0 (f) Tangential inlet inner diameter (mm) 2.0 (g) Swirl decay distance (mm) 138.0
The [[LAMBDA].sup.0.sub.b] direction is measured by using its finite decay distance. To get an estimate of the [[LAMBDA].sup.0.sub.b] energy we can use [[LAMBDA].sup.0.sub.b]'s that come from [[summation].sup.[+ or -].sub.b] [right arrow] [[pi].sup.[+ or -]][[LAMBDA].sup.0.sub.b] and [[summation].sup.*[+ or -].sub.b] [[LAMBDA].sup.0.sub.b] decays.
