Abstract : The multiple-scale method which was earlier employed for lubricating films with striated roughness on one of two opposing surfaces is here extended to include striated roughness on both surfaces. In some papers, the transient effects due to the roughness have been neglected. However, the present analysis shows that the term representing these effects is of the same order of magnitude as others retained in the final equation governing the average pressure. As an example, it is shown that, with the same overall roughness characteristics, the load-carrying capacity of an infinitely-wide slider bearing varies according to how the same roughness is distributed on opposing surfaces.
