Effect of the Angular and Linear Parameters of Interaction of Water Droplets of Various Shapes on the Characteristics of Their Collisions

The influence of the dimensionless angular and linear parameters of interaction of water droplets shaped as a sphere, an ellipsoid, and a conventionally liquid disk on the characteristics (regimes) of their collisions in air (bouncing, coalescence, separation, or disruption) is studied by using a system of high-speed video recording. Conditions of sustainable implementation of this interaction are determined. Maps of the corresponding regimes are constructed and compared with available data. The characteristic sizes, the number of liquid fragments formed in collisions, and the total areas of the evaporation surface are calculated. It is demonstrated that the liquid surface area in the case of collisions of conventionally liquid disks is significantly (by several times) greater than that in the case of spherical droplets.
