A simplified governing equation with high-order effects is formulated after a procedure of evaluating the order of magnitude. Furthermore, the nonlinear evolution equations are derived by the Kármán-Polhausen integral method with a specified velocity profile. Particularly, the effects of surface tension, van der Waals potential, inertia and high-order viscous dissipation are taken into consideration in these equation. The numerical results reveal that the rupture time of free film is much shorter than that of a film on a flat plate. It is shown that because of a more complete high-order viscous dissipation effect discussed in the present study, the rupture process of present model is slower than is predicted by the high-order long wave theory.
