We consider static liquid layers on planar solid boundaries and analyze their instabilities. The plates are heated and thermocapillary, evaporative and rupture instabilities are discussed with particular attention paid to the development of dry out. Long-wave evolution equations are derived that govern the nonlinear stability of the layers subject to the coupled mechanisms. Previous theory, experiment and present results are thoroughly discussed.
