      Abstract:

      The kinetics of the collisions between droplet and the fiber is   being studied in both theoretical and numerical way. During   theoretical investigations the balances between the various   components of total energy of the droplet have been used. As a   result, we have obtained the conditions (expressed in terms of   non-dimensional parameters characterizing the system) at which   the deposition of the droplet on the fiber or the separation of   the droplet from the fiber occurs. The results of theoretical   computation have been compared with the results of the numerical   simulations using the two-color lattice-Boltzmann method.
