The aim of present work is to describe results of computer simulations, which show the influence of kinetic effects on evaporation of pinned sessile submicron droplets of water. The suggested model takes into account both diffusive and kinetic regimes of evaporation. The obtained results show a smooth transition between kinetic and diffusive regimes of evaporation as the droplet size decreases from millimetre to micrometer size.
