Slip Effects on Peristaltic Transport of Casson Fluid in an Inclined Elastic Tube with Porous Walls
Keywords:Darcy number, elastic parameters, pressure rise, velocity slip, yield stress
The present study investigates the combined effects of slip and inclination on peristaltic transport of Casson fluid in an elastic tube with porous walls. The modeled governing equations are solved analytically by considering the long wavelength and small Reynolds number approximations. A parametric analysis has been presented to study the effects of Darcy number, the angle of inclination, elastic parameters, velocity slip, yield stress, amplitude ratio, inlet and outlet radius on volumetric flow rate. The study reveals that an increase in the angle of inclination has a proportional increase in the pressure rise. Also, an increase in the porosity has a significant reduction in the pressure rise.
