Abstract

We consider a deformation of a thin film which is hanging between two solid flat walls under thermal load action. A two-dimensional model is applied to describe the motion of thin layers of viscous nonisothermal liquid under microgravity conditions. The model is based on the Navier-Stokes equations. A numerical analysis of the influence of thermal loads on the deformation and break of freely hanging thin films has been carried out. The mutual influence of capillary and thermo-capillary forces on thin film free surface position has been shown. The results of model problem solutions are presented.
