The present article addresses the peristaltic flow of a Jeffery fluid over an inclined axisymmetric porous tube with varying viscosity and thermal conductivity. Velocity slip and convective boundary conditions are considered. Resulting governing equations are solved using long wavelength and small Reynolds number approximations. The closed-form solutions are obtained for velocity, streamline, pressure gradient, temperature, pressure rise, and frictional force. The MATLAB numerical simulations are utilized to compute pressure rise and frictional force. The impacts of various physical parameters in the interims for time-averaged flow rate Q with pressure rise P 0 and P 0 is examined. The consequences of sinusoidal, multi-sinusoidal, triangular, trapezoidal, and square waveforms on physiological parameters are analyzed and discussed through graphs. The analysis reveals that the presence of variable viscosity helps in controlling the pumping performance of the fluid.
