The phenomenon of water mist impacting on horizontal
wires has been experimentally investigated. This
process is relevant to the water mist intercepting and
penetrating into the openings of compartment. The
impaction of droplets on wires provides a basis for the
understanding of the similar processes on more
complicated structures such as screens.
