The pumping effect which is proposed by the authors to explain the accumulation of liquid-like chemicals on the air bearing surface has been analyzed by taking into the account the incline of the air bearing surface. Numerical results show that the accumulation rate of the contaminant decreases as the incline of the air bearing surface increases and at the same time the maximum adsorbed film thickness shifts from the outlet to the inner surface.
