Abstract: Thin-film type equations have important applications, e.g. in coating flows, food processing, solar cells. Recently research has focussed on the inclusion of more challenging physics of multiphase systems. This minisymposium features corresponding research including additional surfactant transport, suspension flows, flows over liquid substrates. Another major issue is the thermodynamically consistent statement of such models. Problems are presented from an applied perspective and their modeling, numerics and analysis are discussed. Identifying common mathematical problems inherent to systems of thin-film type problems and successful solution strategies will support industrial applications and the fundamental understanding of such problems.
