Heat transfer analysis in peristaltic slip flow with Hall and ion-slip currents


COMSATS Institute of Information Technology


This work is devoted to the study of heat transfer effects in peristaltically induced flow of an electrically conducting viscous fluid in an asymmetric channel. An incompressible fluid fills the porous space in a channel. Analysis is made in the presence of Hall and ion-slip effects. The effects of velocity and thermal slips at the boundaries are considered. The problems which govern the fluid flow and heat transfer are modeled in the wave frame of reference. Exact solutions have been constructed under realistic assumptions. Important features of peristaltic motion and heat transfer are studied with the varying values of Hall parameter, ion-slip parameter, Hartman number, permeability parameter, velocity slip parameter and thermal slip parameter. The graphical results for the field quantities are given in detail.
