Analysis of the load capacity, friction force, and lubricant flow of a infinite width, plane guide during transverse vibration and translation of a plate is presented. The effect of lubricant inertia on these variables is investigated and found to be significant. Analysis is facilitated through assumption of a parabolic velocity distribution across the film thickness as suggested by lubrication theory. The parabolic profile assumption is found to underestimate the contribution of lubricant inertia to the load capacity during plate vibration.
