The present study investigates the effects of slip and heat transfer on peristaltic mechanism of Bingham fluid in an inclined tube. The sinusoidal, multi-sinusoidal, triangular, square and trapezoidal wave forms are considered. The analysis has been carried out under the assumptions of long wavelength and small Reynold's number approximations. The closed-form solutions are obtained for velocity, plug flow velocity, pressure gradient, streamlines, and temperature. The numerical integration is employed to investigate the effects of pressure rise and frictional force. The influence of relevant parameters on physiological quantities of interest is analyzed and discussed through graphs. The study reveals that velocity and thermal slip have a decreasing effect on velocity and temperature. Further, it is noticed that the volume of trapped bolus increases for increasing values of velocity slip parameter.
