The slow spreading of several viscous films over a deep viscous pool

Abstract:

In this study, a previously derived two-dimensional model is used to describe the slow spreading of viscous films on the surface of a quiescent deep viscous pool due to gravity. It is assumed that the densities and viscosities of the fluids in the films and pool are comparable, but may be different. It is also assumed that surface tension effects are negligible. The fluid in the films and in the pool are both modelled using the Stokes flow equations. By exploiting the slenderness of the sprea...
