This paper proposes the use of a Poiseuille flow rate database for rapid calculation of a generalized lubrication equation for high Knudsen number gas films. The database is created by numerical calculations based on the linearized Boltzmann equation. The proposed interpolation method is verified to reduce calculation time to several tenths of that required to perform rigorous calculations with the same accuracy.
