Effect of an inclined magnetic field on peristaltic flow of Bingham plastic fluid in an inclined symmetric channel with slip conditions

Abstract

This paper studies the influence of an inclined magnetic field on peristaltic transportof incompressible Bingham plastic fluid in an inclined symmetric channel with heattransfer and mass transfer. Slip conditions for heat transfer and concentration areemployed. The formulation of the problem is presented through, the regular perturbationtechnique for small Bingham number is used to find the final expression of streamfunction, the flow rate, heat distribution and concentration distribution. The numericalsolution of pressure rise per wave length is obtained through numerical integrationbecause its analytical solution is impossible. Also the trapping phenomenon is analyzed.The effect of the physical parameters of the problem are discussed and illustratedgraphically
