Numerical simulation of complex fluid drying in a Hele-Shaw cell

A 2D model is currently under development to describe the flow and concentration fields inside a Hele-Shaw cell with evaporation for a receding meniscus (dip-coating-like configuration). An original approach is proposed to address the difficult problem of the boundary conditions close to the contact line. The model is used to study the deposit thickness as a function of some process parameters.
