An analysis of micropolar squeeze films is presented. Expressions are derived for calculating the pressure, the load-carrying capacity of the squeeze film and film thickness–time relationship. Numerical results computed from these expressions reveal that fluid microstructure improves the squeeze film action and increases the load-carrying capacity of the squeeze film, while the load-carrying capacity reduces rapidly with an increase in fluid substructure.
