The tribological performance of different microtexture shapes is evaluated for the case of gas lubricated textured parallel slider bearings. The geometry of each shape is optimized in terms of load carrying capacity, after which the performance of different shapes is compared relative to each other. The ellipsoidal shape is found to generate the largest load carrying capacity.
