We have reviewed the known data about mechanisms, conditions, reasons, and characteristics of rebound, coagulation, and explosive disintegration of drops in gas-vapor-droplet streams. The three main factors of altering a direction of motion, a velocity, a size and a concentration of droplets in a gaseous stream have been highlighted. Among of them are the thermal factor (heating and evaporation of drops), the aerodynamic factor (acceleration, reverse motion, and deceleration of drops due to their entrainment by gaseous stream), the dynamic factor (change in size, velocity, and direction of motion of drops after their collision). We have generalized the findings obtained by various authors in experiments with two drops, little group of drops, and aerosol. In addition, we have reviewed the published results about the fields of velocities and motion trajectories of drops in a flow, about the change in size and concentration of drops due to rebound, coagulation, disintegration (i.e. the complete destruction of the parent drops and the detachment of the liquid fragments of different size and volume from the surface).
