Abstract: The present paper deals with viscoelastic flows in a thin domain. In particular, we derive and analyse the asymptotic equations of the Stokes-Oldroyd system in thin films (including shear effects). We present a numerical method which solves the corresponding problem and we present some related numerical tests which evidence the effects of the elastic contribution on the flow.
