The initial conditions of Madejski’s splat-quench solidification model for the impact of molten droplets on a solid substrate surface are modified by eliminating the adjustable parameter “ε” used in the estimation of initial spreading droplet radius. In the present model, the initial conditions are estimated after a definite time interval from the start of impact. Numerical predictions obtained from an improved Madejski model with different ε and the corresponding experimental measurements published in the literature are used for the comparison of the present model predictions. The improvements noted from the model predictions are reported.
