Default Air bearing

I have a problem in which i am supposed to simulate the air flow between two surfaces. Now generally in case of air bearings the thickness of film is about 10microns or less. and i have tried using fluent which gives me answers for anything above 100 microns but below it the solutions do not converge. It is a pressure inlet pressure outlet problem.Is it possible to simulate bearing lubrication and the forces generated by it using fluent?.What are the least dimension with which we can play in fluent?. thanks dinesh
