Abstract

In this paper we use the lubrication approximation to analyse three-dimensional unsteady flow of a thin film of Newtonian fluid around a symmetric slender moving dry patch on an inclined planar substrate. The flow being driven by gravity and a prescribed constant shear stress at the free surface. We obtain a novel unsteady travelling-wave similarity solution for the dry patch of uniform thickness, in which the dry patch travels at constant speed. This solution predicts that the dry patch has a parabolic shape which may be concave up or concave down the substrate. In all
cases investigated numerically the film thickness is found to increase monotonically away from the contact line.
