An analytical study is presented on the influence of finite wall conductance and inertia effects in magnetohydrodynamic lubrication flow between two parallel disks, one of which is rotating with constant angular velocity, in the presence of the axial magnetic field. Numerical results showing the behavior of wall conductance and inertia effects on pressure distribution, load carrying capacity, critical speed, and frictional torque of the bearing are obtained. Results obtained will provide necessary conditions for wall materials to improve the bearing performance.
