The solution comprises of two parts. First, for a given groove's basal angle, liquid-solid contact angle, and the Bond number, the shape of free surface is determined starting from the Young-Laplace equation. The optimization technique as developed formerly is applied. Then, having determined the shape of the free surface and slope of the groove, the distribution of fluid flow is determined. The boundary value problem is solved using boundary collocation method in least square sense. Given the distribution of fluid velocity the friction factor as a function of the other parameters of the model is analyzed.
