ABSTRACT

The interaction of peristaltic transport of an incompressible Newtonian viscous fluid in a two-dimensional uniform channel, with the elasticity of the flexible walls has been studied in the presence of transverse magnetic field. Using long wavelength approximation, perturbation solutions have been obtained in terms of wall slope parameter. The effects of various elastic parameters, magnetic parameter, Reynolds number and geometric parameter on streamline pattern and average flux have been studied. The phenomenon of trapping has been observed and it is found that the area of the trapped bolus increases with tension parameter, damping and mass concentration parameters. The flux is negative for all values of elastic and geometric parameters.
