On nonisothermal two‐fluid channel flows

    Jajanek Sokolowsky Affiliation


Two‐fluid channel flows arise in different kinds of coating technologies. The corresponding mathematical models represent two‐dimensional free boundary value problems for the Navier‐Stokes equations or their modifications. In this paper we are concerned with the so‐called Boussinesq‐approximation of the coupled heat‐ and mass transfer. Thermocapillary convection is included. The solvability of two related stationary problems is discussed. The solution techniques of both problems are quite different. The obtained results generalize previous results for similar isothermal problems.
