Droplets and sprays are ubiquitous in variety of multiphase, multiscale applications spanning across surface patterning, oil recovery, combustion, atomization, spray drying, thermal barrier coating, renewable energy, electronic cooling, to name a few. This book provides two levels of detailing pertaining to such applications. Each chapter of this book delves into the intricacies of one such application and provides not only an overview but also details of the physical insights into the application mechanisms from the point of view of droplets and sprays. In this book, the authors aimed to provide not just a brief overview but also to answer questions like what is the behavior of droplets, what are the measurement techniques available to study and control such these phenomenon, and how the droplet transport can be measured and monitored using modern optical diagnostics.
