This chapter is devoted to interfaces of various kinds. In addition to interfaces that separate two immiscible pure fluids at mechanical and thermodynamic equilibrium, we consider moving surfaces with surface tension and internal viscosity. Heat and mass transfer can also occur through and along interfaces, and this can induce evaporation and condensation processes, chemical and thermal Marangoni effects, etc. Chemical reactions may also take place. Various miscibility scenarios can be considered too.
