Abstract

The effects of flow rheology and wall slip on the isothermal squeeze film flow between two spherical hydrophobic surfaces are derived analytically. The non-Newtonian power-law model as well as the Navier-slip boundary conditions is considered in the partially wetted bearings. The squeeze flow and the viscous forces between two rigid spheres are discussed for various combinations of flow index, squeeze velocity, minimum film thickness, and slip lengths.
