The motion of an electrically conducting fluid film squeezed between two parallel disks in the presence of a magnetic field applied perpendicular to the disks is studied. Analytic solutions through use of a regular perturbation scheme are obtained. The results show that the electromagnetic forces increase the load carrying capacity considerably.
