Fig. 12


Circular velocity (dashed lines) and average rotation (dotted lines) of all the disks before the merger (black) and 6 Gyr later for both orbits (30-degree inclination in blue, and 60-degree inclination in red). In all cases the disks are first aligned such that the total angular momentum vector of all particles within the half-mass radius of the disk is perpendicular to the plane in which the average rotational velocity is measured. All particles considered have | z | < 0.05 kpc h-1 and the bins have a variable bin size, but a fixed number of 400 particles each.
