The laminar squeeze flow of a viscous incompressible fluid between a flat circular disk and an axisymmetric curved disk of arbitrary shape is investigated theoretically using modified lubrication theory. The characteristics of squeeze film are investigated through inertia and curvature effects on the normal force exerted on the upper curved moving disk described by an exponential function for the sinusoidal squeeze motion. The constant force squeezing state is also examined. It has been observed that the load carrying capacity of the curved squeeze film is strongly influenced by the curvature and inertia effects.
