This paper presents a study of the acoustic agglomeration of a fog. It is firstly shown that the wall-losses, which are a function of acoustic power P and size of the droplets, can be characterised in a straightforward way, which allows the determination of the true acoustic agglomeration rate at each size of the size distribution. Secondly, the interaction between fine and inertial droplets is studied. It is shown that the agglomeration rate of fine droplets depends linearly on the number of inertial droplets, and is proportional to the acoustic power.
