In this paper, a theoretical approach is employed to analyze the thermal behaviour and study the cooling process of water droplets in cold regions. Additionally, the effect of several parameters, such as air temperature, droplet size, initial droplet temperature, relative humidity and droplet salinity on the cooling process is investigated. The model contains convection, evaporation, and radiation heat transfer from the droplet’s surface and a uniform temperature across the droplet. The results illustrate a good agreement between the theoretical predictions and previously measured data. Furthermore, droplet size, air temperature, initial droplet temperature, and droplet flight time have a substantial effect on the droplet cooling process. This model is a useful tool to investigate the thermal behaviour and the cooling process of water droplets.
