Instabilities and modeling of falling film flows

Abstract : This manuscript presents a synthesis of research activities devoted to the study and low-dimensional modeling of long-wave instabilities in general and to falling film flows in particular. The different methodologies are discussed in Chapter~1 and applied to the modeling of inertial flows in a Hele-Shaw cell. Chapter~2 is devoted to the Kapitza instability of a falling film. Chapter~3 and 4 investigate the coupling of the Kapitza instability with the Marangoni (heated films) and the Rayleigh-Plateau instabilities (films running down fibers). Chapter~5 presents recent works on non-Newtonian falling films, films running on porous media and some current works on films sheared by a gas stream.
