• RADIATION EFFECTS ON THE PERISTALTIC FLOW OF A JEFFREY FLUID THROUGH A POROUS MEDIUM IN A CHANNEL

B. RANJITHA, M. V. SUBBA REDDY*

Abstract


In this paper, the flow of a Jeffrey fluid through a porous medium in a channel with peristalsis has received minute attention. Hence, an attempt is made to study the peristaltic flow of a Jeffrey fluid through a porous medium in a symmetric channel under the assumptions of long wavelength. The expressions for the velocity and pressure gradient are obtained analytically. The effects of various pertinent parameters on the pumping characteristics and temperature field are studied in detail with the aid of graphs.


Keywords


Jeffrey fluid; Porous medium; Peristaltic flow; Radiation.
