The effect of surface roughness on characteristics of magnetic fluid based squeeze film between porous circular plates is hypothetically analysed. The pressure distribution is obtained by solving concern Reynolds type equation with suitable boundary conditions and the result is utilized to obtain load carrying capacity. It is concluded that the load carrying capacity increases with increasing magnetization, while load carrying capacity decreases due to the standard deviation. It is observed that the negatively skewed roughness and negative mean increase the load carrying capacity. It is also observed that the magnetic fluid lubricant improves the performance of a bearing system, thereby, suggesting that the performance of the bearing with magnetic fluid lubricant is better than the conventional lubricant.
