Heat Transfer on Peristaltic Transport with Slip Condition in an Asymmetric Porous Channel (TECHNICAL NOTE)


Mathematics, kalyani govt.engg.college


Simultaneous effects of slip and heat transfer on peristaltic transport of an incompressible electrically conducting viscous fluid  in an  asymmetric channel is studied under the assumptions of long wavelength and low Reynold number .The  asymmetry is produced by choosing the peristaltic wave train on the walls to have different amplitudes and phase.Exect solutions for stream function,velocity field, temperature profile, pressure gradient are obtained.The effects of different parameters entering into the problem on pressure rise are discussed numerically and explained graphically.Also pumping and trapping phenomena are discussed by numerical integration.
