Hydrodynamic Lubrication of Rough Surfaces
Abstract
Using the twospace homogenization method we derive an averaged Reynolds equation that is correct to O(< H^6>  < H^3>^2), where H is the total film thickness and the angle brackets denote a spatial average. Applications of this mean Reynolds equation to a squeezefilm bearing with a sinusoidal or an isotropic surface roughness are discussed.
