An analysis of the experimental data for a two-phase spraying stream showed that it has a number of features. In particular, such a flow is strongly turbulent; the average velocities of phases differ markedly at all points of the flow; there is a noticeable rarefaction of gas in the root zone of the spray; the hydrodynamic drag coefficient of each drop is smaller than of a single spherical particle at the same value of the Reynolds number.
