The present paper reports ongoing work to develop numerical and modeling tools used to investigate the effects of splashing droplets on spray cooling processes and to determine characteristic non-dimensional parametric dependence for practical fluids and conditions. In particular, we present data that will delineate conditions towards control of the impingement dynamics of droplets upon a heated substrate germane to practical situations.
