Hall Effect on Peristaltic Flow of Third Order Fluid in a Porous Medium with Heat and Mass Transfer

Abstract

We investigated the influence of hall, heat and mass transfer on the peristaltic flow of MHD third order fluid under long-wavelength and low Reynolds number approximation. The governing equations are solved analytically with the appropriate boundary conditions by using perturbation technique. The formula of velocity with temperature and concentration is obtained analytically as a function of the physical parameters of the problem.

1. Introduction

Many fluids in biological system are transported by peristalsis. The word peristalsis stems from the Greek word peristaltikos, which means clasping and compressing. Physically, it means the mechanism for pumping fluid in a tube by means of a moving contractile ring around the tube, which pushes the material onward. The need for peristaltic pumping may arise in circumstances where it is desirable to avoid using any internal moving parts such as pistons to be one of the main mechanisms of fluid transport in a biological system. The application of peristaltic motion as a mean of transporting fluid has aroused interested in engineering fields. Latham [1] was probably the first to study the mechanism of peristaltic pumping in his M. S. Thesis. Several researches have analyzed the phenomenon of peristaltic transport under various assumptions. Haroun [2] studied the effect of a third-order fluid on the peristaltic transport in an asymmetric channel. In his study, the wavelength of the peristaltic waves is assumed to be large compared to the varying channel width, whereas the wave amplitudes need not be small compared to the varying channel width. Eldabe et al. [3] analyzed the incompressible flow of electrically conducting biviscosity fluid through an axisymmetric nonuniform tube with a sinusoidal wave under the considerations of long wavelength and low Reynolds number.

In the last years, several simple flow problems of classical hydrodynamics have received new attention in the more general context magnetohydrodynamics (MHD). The study of the motion of non-Newtonian fluids in the presense of the magnetic field has applications in many devices such as magneto hydrodynamic (MHD) power generator, MHD pumps, bioengineering devices and accelerators. Also it has been established that the biological systems are greatly affected by the application of the external magnetic field. Moreover, the MHD flow of a fluid in a channel with elastic, rhythmically contracting walls (peristaltic flow) is of interest in connection with certain problems of the movement of conductive physiological fluids. Some recent investigations made to discuss the mechanism of MHD include the works. Hayat et al. [4] studied the peristaltic transport of a third order fluid under the effect of a magnetic field. Srinivas and Kothandapani [5] have studied the influence of heat and mass transfer on MHD peristaltic flow through a porous space with compliant walls. Another important aspect in MHD is related to Hall effect. Such effect cannot be overlooked when flow subject to high magnetic field is considered. Siddiqui et al. [6] studied effects of Hall current and heat transfer on MHD flow of a Burgers fluid due to a pull of eccentric rotating disks. Hall effects on peristaltic flow of a Maxwell fluid in a porous medium have been studied by Hayat et al. [7] studied effects of Hall current and heat transfer on rotating flow of a second grade fluid through a porous medium. Khalid Nowar [8] studied Peristaltic Flow of a Nanofluid under the effect of Hall Current and Porous Medium.

The study of the influence of mass and heat transfer on non-Newtonian fluids has become important in the last few years. This importance is due to number of industrial processes. Examples are food processing, biochemical operations and transport in polymers, biomedical engineering; micro fabrication technologies etc., besides these biological tissues with heat transfer involve modes like heat conduction in tissues, heat convection by blood flow through the pores of tissue and radiation heat transfer between surface and its environment. Motivated by such facts, the peristaltic flow with heat transfer has been explored. El-Dabe et al. [9] studied magnetohydrodynamic flow and heat transfer for a peristaltic motion of carreau fluid through a porous medium. El-Dabe et al. [10] studied Peristaltic Motion of Non-Newtonian Fluid with Heat and Mass Transfer through a Porous Medium in Channel under Uniform Magnetic Field. El-Dabe et al. [11] analyzed the Magnetohydrodynamic Peristaltic motion with heat and mass transfer of a Jeffery fluid in a tube through porous medium.

With the above discussion in mind, we propose to study the peristaltic motion of non-Newtonian fluid through a porous medium in the channel under the effect of magnetic field. A third order non-Newtonian constitutive model is employed for the transport fluid. The effects of hall, body temperature and concentration are taken into consideration. The governing equations of motion, energy, and concentration have been reduced under the assumption of long wavelength. The reduced equations are then solved analytically via perturbation method. The physical behaviors of emerging parameters are discussed through graphs.
