The behaviour of thin liquid films whether forced to spread or deposited as a distinct pattern on the surface of a substrate, is of enormous significance to many manufacturing and biological processes. The topic of the present study is the flow of continuous thin liquid films over surfaces containing topographical features. In the electronics sector (displays, printed circuits, micro-devices, sensors etc), for example, the industrial goal is often to minimise free surface deviations from planarity either for aesthetic reasons or to ensure predictable product properties [1].
