Abstract:
The calculation of two and three dimensional unsteady viscous flows in thin layers, with surface tension effect, is discussed. Surfactants, substrate energetics, moving contact lines, substrate curvature and shear-thinning rheology are additional effects that are considered. In each case the problem is simplified by use of the lubrication approximation. A variety of real-world applications are mentioned.
