The effect of partial surface texturing in the form of parabolic grooves, rectangular grooves, and triangular grooves on the hydrodynamic pressure is investigated in the present work. The dimensionless hydrodynamic pressure generated by the partial surface texturing is obtained by the multigrid method. The effect of the texturing parameters on the dimensionless average pressure is analyzed for a given set of operating parameters. The results indicate that the geometric shape, area density, groove depth, and orientation of the grooves have an obvious influence on the hydrodynamic pressure. However, the groove width has little effect on the dimensionless average pressure. The results of the present work demonstrate that surface texturing design is very important to generate additional hydrodynamic pressure according to the operating parameters of the mechanical components.
