The basis of the method for calculating the processes of heat and/or mass transfer in a two-phase gas-droplet system consists of equations describing the hydrodynamics of such a system, taking into account the interfacial interaction. Knowledge and understanding of the mechanism of interaction of phases in a two-phase flow, which is created by spraying a liquid in a gas, is definitely not sufficient (as will be shown below). This is one of the main reasons for the abovementioned problem (see Chap.   1 ).
