This paper focuses on the study of macroscopic regularities that describe how moving droplets influence on the evaporation of subsequent droplets in high-temperature gases (1100 K) and air at moderate temperatures (about 300 K). Experiments have been conducted by means of high-speed video recording and using specialized software. Investigations have been performed for two and three successive droplets with the initial radius of 1.5 mm. The effect of droplet braking, coagulation and acceleration has been defined. The typical difference between velocities, sizes and distances of successive droplets has been demonstrated.
