Droplets

 


Establishment of a model for the water bombing from an aircraft


In this section, we are only interested in following a single stable droplet during its fall down to the ground. From the moment when it will be formed by the division of a "mother" drop up to the moment it reaches the ground, this drop will cope with several phenomena :

  • its trajectory in 3D
  • another division, if its velocity becomes too high compared to the stability criteria
  • the evaporation, due to the convection with the air
  • the wake capture owing to the plane itself
