Definition of parameters of the steam-air flow in electrization of bodies

The problem of electric charging of bodies (elements of aircraft) by the gas flow containing the charged disperse phase (the charged drops of water) and ions is considered. It is investigated the electrization of the sphere which are flowed round by the bi-phase charged flow. The electric characteristics are found such as the current on the grounded sphere and its floating potential.
By means of a special technique and the equipment (based on registration of light dispersed by particles under small corners) the longitudinal and cross-section distributions of both the size of drops and their concentration in the turbulent steam-air flow are found.
