Abstract

The present paper emphasizes the peristaltic mechanism of Rabinowitsch liquid in a complaint porous channel under the influence of variable liquid properties and convective heat transfer. The effect of inclination on the complaint channel walls has been taken into account. The viscosity of the liquid varies across the thickness of the complaint channel, whereas, thermal conductivity varies concerning temperature. The nonlinear governing equations are solved by using perturbation technique under the long wavelength and small Reynold’s number approximations. The expressions for axial velocity, temperature, the coefficient of heat transfer and streamlines are obtained and analyzed graphically. The above said physiological phenomena are investigated for a specific set of relevant parameters on dilatant, Newtonian and pseudoplastic fluid models. The results presented here shows that the presence of variable viscosity, porous parameter and slip parameter significantly affects the flow quantities of dilatant, Newtonian and pseudoplastic fluid models. The investigation further reveals that an increase in the value of variable viscosity and porous parameters enhances the occurrence of trapping phenomenon. Moreover, the size of trapped bolus can be eliminated with suitably adjusting the angle of inclination parameter.
