Science
and Engineering of Droplets:
Fundamentals and Applications

by Huimin Liu


Droplets are encountered in nature and a wide range of engineering applications such as spray combustion, spray drying, spray cooling, spray atomization, spray deposition, thermal spray, spray inhalation, aerosol spray, crop spray, paint spray, and many others. The related areas span automobile, aerospace, metallurgy, materials, medicine, food processing, agriculture, meteorology, and power generation.

Science and Engineering of Droplets presents an updated, systematic review of the recent advances in fundamental science and engineering applications of discrete droplet processes.

The objective of this book is to familiarize the reader with the fundamental science and engineering applications of discrete droplets, and to provide experienced researchers, scientists, and engineers with the latest developments in this field.
