Evaporation and heat transfer of the layers of water and aqueous salt solutions (H2O/LiBr, H2O/CaCl2, H2O/LiCl) have been studied experimentally. Evaporation rate is greater for a structured wall than for a smooth one. When simulating droplet evaporation and heat transfer, it is necessary to take into account free convection of air and vapor. There is a change of the heat transfer coefficient for salt solutions layers on the structured surface with the presence of an extremum. The largest value of the heat transfer coefficient α on the structured surface corresponds to water for the final stage of evaporation. For salt solutions, α is lower than that of water. The maximum excess of heat transfer coefficient of micro-structured wall above the smooth wall (20–25%) corresponds to the maximum height of the liquid layer for the initial period of evaporation. With increasing time, the excess is reduced.
