Abstract.The method of multiple scales is used to obtain a uniformly valid expansion for the steady state pressure distribution of a finite rectangular isothermal gas slider bearing when the ratio of width to length is small, i.e. the bearing has narrow geometry.
Specific results are given for a variety of simple bearing geometries.
