The fluid flow processes in a squeeze film having one porous bounding wall are analyzed. The analysis takes account of velocity slip at the surface of the porous medium as well as of the coupled flows in the squeeze film and the porous material. Results are presented for the load-carrying capacity of the squeeze film and its thickness–time relation. The results show that porous media are effective in diminishing the response times of squeeze films. In particular, substantially faster response can be attained by the use of porous materials which accentuate velocity slip.
