Abstract

An analysis of the peristaltic flow in an inclined channel for different wave forms is carried out in this paper. The developed mathematical model is represented by a set of partial differential equations. The finite element method is implemented to solve the governing equations for stream function and vorticity. The obtained results are valid beyond the long wavelength and low Reynolds number limits. Important features of peristaltic transport are discussed for the variation of magnetic field, Reynolds and wave numbers. The obtained results, when compared with the results available in literature are in good agreement.
