The equations governing the flow of a fluid with rigid, spherical substructure are summarized. A two-dimensional flow field is considered and applied to the geometry of a slider bearing. Order-of-magnitude arguments are used which reduce the governing equations to a system of coupled, linear, ordinary differential equations. The equations are solved subject to appropriate boundary conditions and the effects of substructure discussed with the help of a specific numerical example.
