An experimental study has been performed to investigate the integral characteristics of the processes of heat and mass transfer and phase transformations during interaction of a droplet flow with the combustion front of a highly porous condensed material. The macroscopic regularities of the suppression of flaming combustion and thermal decomposition of typical forest fuel material due to the removal of heat as a result of its absorption during vaporization and convective cooling were studied. Three modes of interaction of a droplet aerosol with the burning forest fuel materials were considered. The time of combustion termination and the time of thermal decomposition of forest fuel materials were determined. The mechanisms of the main physicochemical processes occurring during interaction of droplet flow with the combustion front of typical forest fuel materials were established.
