Lubrication performances of square shape textured parallel sliding contacts are examined under the combined influence of both fluid inertia and fluid slippage at the fluid–solid interface. A two-component slip length model and first-order perturbation method are adopted to formulate pressure governing equation consisting of fluid-slip and fluid inertia terms. The effect of texture size (aspect ratio), texture height ratio, reduced Reynolds number, slip length coefficient and critical threshold shear stress on the performance parameters like load support, end flow and friction parameter of parallel sliding contacts is studied. The results indicate that effect of fluid-slip is more influential than fluid inertia; therefore, the result shows similar and closer trend to the fluid-slip results. However, the magnitude of performance parameters depends on the effect of fluid inertia. Moreover, aspect ratio of 0.3–0.5 and lower value of texture height ratios can be used to achieve better hydrodynamic lubrication performance in parallel sliding contacts.
