Abstract: Damped quasi-mode kink oscillations in cylindrical flux tubes are capable of explaining the observed rapid damping of the coronal loop oscillations when the ratio of the inhomogeneity length scale to the radius of the loop is allowed to vary from loop to loop, without the need to invoke anomalously low Reynolds numbers. The theoretical expressions for the decay time by Hollweg & Yang (1988) and Ruderman & Roberts (2002) are used to estimate the ratio of the length scale of inhomogeneity compared to the loop radius for a collection of loop oscillations.
