The Reynolds equation for the general case of dynamic loading is derived for fluid suspensions, using the micropolar fluid theory. Detailed consideration is given to the dynamic behavior of squeeze films in journal bearings under a fluctuating load with no journal rotation. The characteristics of an infinitely long journal bearing under a cyclic sinusoidal load are shown in curve form, so as to elaborate the micropolar effects.
