In this paper, after reviewing the form of the constitutive equations for a third grade Korteweg fluid, recently derived by means of an extended Liu procedure, an equilibrium problem is investigated. By considering a two-dimensional setting, a single nonlinear elliptic equation is derived such that the equilibrium conditions are identically satisfied. Such an equation is discussed both analytically and numerically. Moreover, by considering a particular boundary value problem of Dirichlet type, some preliminary numerical solutions are presented.
