We have presented an application of the modified Moving Particle Semi-implicit (MPS) method for squeeze film flows. In addition to calculating the flow field of a squeeze film using the full Navier-Stokes equations, this method has the advantage of being meshless, which gives it the capability of analyzing dynamic and/or highly transient squeeze films by discretizing the domain as a series of particles and numerically analyzing inter-particle interactions. Although past literature has indicated the MPS method in its original form to be unstable in terms of its calculation of pressure, a modified algorithm was implemented to provide agreement between the numerical results and the analytical solutions.
