The analytical study of an infinite, lubricated slider bearing consisting of connected surfaces with Powell-Eyring fluid as lubricant is considered. Under the assumption of the order of magnitude of the variables, it is seen that only viscous and Non-Newtonian terms have effects, where as the inertia terms are negligible. The pressure distribution for inclined slider bearing is calculated approximately by using homotopy analysis method. The variation of pressure and from that the load carrying capacity of the bearing is presented for a range of fluid and bearing parameters.
