Fluid inertia effects in a non-Newtonian squeeze film between two plane annuli

Pages: 872 - 875
An analysis is presented for the laminar squeeze flow of an incompressible powerlaw fluid between parallel plane annuli using the modified lubrication theory and energy integral method. The local and the convective inertia of the flow are considered in the investigation. Analytical expressions for the load carrying capacity of the squeeze film are obtained using both the methods and are compared with those based on the assumption of inertialess flow. It is observed that the inertia correction in the load carrying capacity is more significant for pseudo-plastic fluids.
