We apply the Brinkman-extended Darcy model to analyze the hydrodynamic lubrication of long porous slider bearings. The solutions are obtained and compared with those based on the Darcy model. The results show that the effects of viscous shear given by the Brinkman-extended Darcy model lead to a higher load capacity and a lower friction parameter. It is found that a thicker porous bearing gives a greater effect of viscous shear on load capacity and friction parameter.
