This paper is concerned with the motion of a fluid film squeezed between two rotating parallel plane surfaces. Attention is given to the case of impulsive squeezing and impulsive rotation. Approximate analytic solutions are obtained and a numerical solution to the full nonlinear equations of motion is presented. The results show that the centrifugal inertial forces increase the radial outflow and reduce considerably the load capacity while the noncentrifugal inertial forces increase the torque.
