@article{Ellahi2016PeristalticFO, title={Peristaltic Flow of Couple Stress Fluid in a Non-Uniform Rectangular Duct Having Compliant Walls}, author={Rahmat Ellahi and Muhammad Mubashir Bhatti and Corina Fetecau and Kambiz Vafai}, journal={Communications in Theoretical Physics}, year={2016}, volume={65}, pages={66 - 72} }

The present study investigates the peristaltic flow of couple stress fluid in a non-uniform rectangular duct with compliant walls. Mathematical modeling is based upon the laws of mass and linear momentum. Analytic solutions are carried out by the eigen function expansion method under long-wavelength and low-Reynolds number approximations. The features of the flow characteristics are analyzed by plotting the graphs of various values of physical parameters of interest. Trapping bolus scheme is…
