MHD Effect on Peristaltic Transport for Rabinowitsch Fluid through A Porous Medium in Cilia Channel

Abstract

This paper is employed to discuss the effects of the magnetic field and heattransfer on the peristaltic flow of Rabinowitsch fluid through a porous medium inthe cilia channel. The governing equations (mass, motion, and energy) areformulated and then the assumptions of long wavelength and low Reynold numberare used for simplification. The velocity field, pressure gradient, temperature, andstreamlines are obtained when the perturbation technique is applied to solve thenonlinear partial differential equations. The study shows that the velocity isdecreased with increasing Hartmann number while it is decreased with increasingthe porosity.
