In this study we attempt to find the optimum geometrical parameters of square-shape micro-dimples imposed on parallel flat bearing surfaces which give the best tribological performance, including load capacity and friction coefficient. An analytical solution of Reynolds equation for the surfaces involving numerous dimples is presented, then considering the variations of number of dimples as well as dimple length and height ratios for a constant dimpled length, it is tended to get the optimumdoi:10.1080/10402000701429261 fatcat:4bq5pnek4jexdeljpomrd4zwmy
