Abstract

Purpose: This paper is concerned with the peristaltic transport of an incompressible non-Newtonian fluid in a porous elastic tube. The impacts of slip and heat transfer on the Herschel-Bulkley fluid are considered. The impacts of relevant parameters on flow rate and temperature are examined graphically. The examination incorporates Newtonian, Power-law and Bingham plastic fluids. The paper aims to discuss these issues. Design/methodology/approach: The administering equations are solved utilizing long wavelength and low Reynolds number approximations, and exact solutions are acquired for velocity, temperature, flux and stream functions. Findings: It is seen that the flow rate in a Newtonian fluid is high when contrasted with the Herschel-Bulkley model, and the inlet elastic radius and outlet elastic radius have opposite effects on the flow rate. Originality/value: The analysis carried out in this paper is about the peristaltic transport of an incompressible non-Newtonian fluid in a porous elastic tube. The impact of slip and heat transfer on a Herschel-Bulkley fluid is taken into account. The impacts of relevant parameters on the flow rate and temperature are examined graphically. The examination incorporates Newtonian, Power-law and Bingham plastic fluids.
