Abstract

We study the effects of induced magnetic field and slip on the peristaltic flow of Jeffrey fluid in a non-uniform channel. Flow analysis is discussed in the presence of heat and mass transfer. Main emphasis is given to the study of stream function, the longitudinal pressure gradient, the magnetic force function, the axial induced magnetic field, the current density, the temperature and concentration. Numerical integration is carried out for pressure rise per wavelength. The flow quantities of interest are discussed by graphical illustrations.

 

Key words: Jeffrey fluid, induced magnetic field, slip, heat and mass transfer.
