Results of an experimental investigation of transformation of water projectiles (spherical “balls” with a volume of 50–1000 mL) in the course of their free fall (from a height of 3 m) within a high-temperature (about 1100 K) gaseous medium (with the application of the standardized fire) are represented. Investigations are carried out for projectiles of water, its solutions with NaCl, and suspensions with carbon particles. Conditions and characteristics of disruption of projectiles are determined as they move through high-temperature gases. The transformation deceleration of the projectile was revealed because of its “compression” in the high-temperature zone (in comparison with moderate temperatures).
