Abstract: In this paper, a Newton-Multigrid method is presented to solve the numerical simulation of the slider air bearing. For each fixed attitude in the specified grid, the Newton method is used to achieve the pressure distribution of the slider by solving the generalized Reynolds equations discretized by the least square finite difference (LSFD) method. Between the different sizes of grids, full approximation multigrid method is used to accelerate the convergence rate by eliminating the dominating low frequency error mode in the late stages of convergence. From the case study of the slider air bearing, it shows that the Newton-Multigrid method is accurate and efficient for the numerical simulation problem. © World Scientific Publishing Company.
