Abstract:

The deposition and transport of fine droplets in a water mist flowing downwards onto a horizontal plate are modeled numerically in this study. It reveals the aerodynamic process of droplets impacting to the top of a compartment or an object. The nature of the droplets transport phenomenon in the wake region behind an object is also investigated.
