The present paper reports ongoing work to develop numerical, modeling, and experimental tools used to investigate the physical mechanism leading to "splashing modes" and to determine characteristic parametric non-dimensional dependence for impinging droplets representative of practical fluids and conditions. In particular, we present data that will delineate and ultimately control the impingement dynamics of droplets upon a heated substrate germane to practical situations.
