It is well known that both combustion e±ciency in diesel engines, and the the quenching of ¯res, is conditioned by the surface to volume ratio of fuel/water droplets. This requires a deeper understanding of the droplet break- up process within liquid sprays. The break-up of individual droplets follows well known behaviour although how nearby droplets in the spray in°uence this process is not well understood. By numerically simulating the break-up behaviour of two equally sized droplets in two distinct geometrical con¯gurations it is shown that the break up of each droplet is strongly in°uenced by the presence of the other.
