Fig. 3


Red line: average density radial profile at t = 4242 in the simulation of case A. Black plain line: fit (Σfit) of the average density profile. Green plain line: density background profile (ΣBG) deduced from the fit. Green dashed line and black dashed lines: average equilibrium density radial profiles reached in the simulations RELAX-1 and RELAX-2, respectively. The grey area shows theoretical positive total torque region considering the reconstructed density profile with the density fit. The position of the inner boundary of this area (RPT) is indicated by a vertical blue line. The two hatched areas show the buffer zones used in the simulation: the inner and outer regions where physical quantities are damped to the initial power law profile.
