The motion of a manifold of liquid droplets in the counterflow of high-temperature (above 1000 K) gases has been experimentally studied for variable initial size (0.01-0.05 mm) and velocity (0.1-0.5 m/s) of droplets and the gas flow velocity (0.1-2 m/s). The properties of gas-vapor-droplet mixtures were monitored by optical diagnostic techniques. Conditions under which the trajectories and velocities of droplets moving in a high-temperature gas counterflow exhibit significant changes are determined.
