A comparative mathematical analysis of slider bearing made up of double porous layered slider supported by solid wall with different designed stator such as convex, parallel, exponential, inclined, and secant is presented in this research paper. The study includes the effect of slip velocity as suggested by Sparrow et al. [13] at the interface of film-porous. Effects of squeeze velocity and the oblique variable magnetic field to the lower plate are considered. General form of Reynolds type equation, non-dimensional squeeze film pressure and load carrying capacity expressions are obtained. The values of non-dimensional load carrying capacity are obtained and compared among various considered designs bearings. Overall, it could be concluded that compared to others, secant pad stator slider bearing is suggested for the superior performance of the system.
