Peristaltic Pumping of a Conducting Sisko Fluid through Porous Medium with Heat and Mass Transfer


The mathematical model is presented for the flow of peristaltic pumping of a conducting non-Newtonian fluid obeying Sisko model through a porous medium under the effect of magnetic field with heat and mass transfer. The solutions of the system of equations which represent this motion are obtained analytically using perturbation technique after considering the approximation of long wave length. The formula of the velocity with temperature and concentration of the fluid is obtained as a function of the physical parameters of the problem. The effects of these parameters on these solutions are discussed numerically and illustrated graphically through some graphs.
