This paper presents the results of experimental studies of significantly non-stationary processes of droplet shape change for various liquids widely used in the chemical and oil industries (kerosene, ethanol, water) as they move in gas flows (including high temperature gas flows). Characteristic differences between the main deformation parameters of single droplets and those in a flow of mist spray were identified. Average and absolute aerodynamic drag coefficients for liquid droplets during deformation were determined.
