An analysis of the laminar squeezing flow of an incompressible Newtonian fluid between parallel plane annuli is presented in which a successive approximation technique is used to account for fluid inertia effects. An expression for the force generated by the fluid is developed and coupled to the equation of motion for the annular plate. Results are presented from the numerical integration of the governing equations for the plate motion.
