The effect of transverse curvature on the properties of a rectangular slider bearing with side leakage is studied for film thickness varying exponentially in the direction of motion and symmetrically perpendicular to this direction. A perturbation technique allows the expression of the results in terms of the same type of simple solution previously obtained without transverse curvature. Thus the solution is convenient for all length to width ratios and entrance to exit clearances.
