The evaporating meniscus is a recurring phenomenon in engineering that has relevance in diverse applications like dip-coating, pool boiling and the micro heat pipe. It is known that the evaporative heat flux at the liquid vapor interface peaks at the interline region. Recent experimental investigations have indicated a rise in the curvature in this region. To match the increased flow predicted by this curvature jump, slip may be required at the solid liquid interface. We use continuum models and experimental data on temperature and thickness to evaluate slip at the liquid solid interface.
