Drop fragmentation occurs commonly in nature and in industrial applications; in particular, the shattering of rain drops on the ground or on the windshield of a moving car is an event we all can relate to. A better comprehension of the high-speed collision of a drop with a moving boundary is useful to develop more efficient strategies to mitigate or prevent erosion on high-speed moving vehicles.
