Abstract

An experimental research method and an analysis of the results of a water droplet phase change in the additionally humidified air flow are presented. The diagrams of variation of the equivalent diameter of convectively heated water droplets are presented and analysed. The influence of initial water temperature and additionally humidifying air flow on the phase change of a droplet in transient regime is experimentally substantiated.
