  • Abstract

Numerical simulations using CLSVOF (coupled level set and volume of fluid) method are performed to investigate the coalescence and splashing regimes when a spherical water drop hits on the water surface with an impingement angle. Impingement angle is the angle between the velocity vector of primary drop and the normal vector to water surface. The effect of impingement angle, impact velocity and the height of target liquid are carried out. The impingement angle is varied from 0o to 90o showing the gradual change in phenomena. The formation of ship pro like shape, liquid sheet, secondary drops and crater are seen. Crater height, crater displacement, crown height and crown angle are calculated and the change in the parameters with change in impingement angle is noted.
