Capillary and wetting phenomena are an essential part of nature. Its presence is noticed in many circumstances where solid and liquid surfaces come into contact. In this thesis different types of capillary free surface flows are studied. The topics discussed are mainly the coalescence of viscous sessile drops, the Marangoni-spreading of locally deposited drops on a thin water film and the dynamic contact angle of the dewetting rim and the effect of external forcing on the rim velocity.
