Consequences of collisions between two water droplets upon their motion in high-temperature (about 1100 K) gases are analyzed statistically. The initial radii and motion velocities of the droplets varied within 0.1–0.25 mm and 0.5–5 m/s, respectively. The velocity of the counterflowing gas was 1.5 m/s. Using panoramic methods and tools of high-speed and cross-correlation video recording, conditions corresponding to different consequences (coagulation, decomposition, or breakup) of collisions between droplets are determined.
