This paper investigates the integral characteristics of the evaporation of water droplets (the initial diameter 4-6 mm) during their motion in flames obtained through the combustion of typical flammable liquids for various purposes, such as kerosene and denatured alcohol. We performed the experiments using high-speed video cameras and panoramic cross-correlation techniques PTV and SP. The difference between evaporation rates under appropriate conditions has been defined. The influence of a droplet initial size on evaporation rate has been demonstrated.
