The current investigation deals with the study of the effect of introducing a small fraction of dust, by volume, to the fluid in a squeeze film on the viscous resistance to a steady moving disc. Expressions are obtained for the fluid-phase and the dust-phase velocity distributions and the dust particle number density. Analysis based on an iterative procedure indicates that the resistance to motion experienced by the moving disc increases due to the presence of dust.
