The fluid flow and heat transfer in an evaporating extended meniscus are numerically studied. Continuity, momentum, energy equations and the Kelvin-Clapeyron model are used to develop a third order, non-linear ordinary differential equation which governs the evaporating thin film. It is shown that the numerical results strongly depend on the choice of the accommodation coefficient and Hamaker constant as well as the initial perturbations. Therefore, in the absence of experimentally verifieddoi:10.5098/hmt.v4.1.3002 fatcat:ttg6r4m3trgjthgocknkq4z2we
