Dynamics of two droplets interactions on a substrate (droplet impact on a sessile droplet) are numerically investigated using OpenFOAM. The impact speed, location of the impacting droplet, viscosity and surface tension were varied in the numerical studies. We found that when the surface tension dominates the flow, the mass canter of two droplets moves to impacting droplet side. When the inertia dominates the flow, the mass centre moves to the opposite direction.
