POLYFLOW - handling the contact point for coating simulation (conflict of boundary conditions)

When defining a coating simulation, a conflict of boundary conditions may potentially develop at the contact point between the free surface and the subsequent moving solid boundary. In steady flow, the free surface assumes a vanishing normal velocity component, which may be in conflict with the non-vanishing tangential velocity component applied on the moving solid boundary.
This concerna all POLYFLOW versions.
A possible remedy consists of replacing the non-vanishing velocity condition on the moving solid boundary by a slipping condition with a high coefficient in the slipping law and the required tangential velocity.
