re-circulation length = size of the flow separation bubble.

flow separation, separation point, flow separation bubble, size of flow separation bubble, flow re-attachment, flow re-attachment point, distance to the flow re-attachment point, flow re-circulation, flow re-circulation region, size of flow re-circulation region........... "re-circulation region", "re-attachment point". length = distance between two points on a straight line or a curve.
