Peristaltic Transport in Elliptic Tubes


Vijai Shanker Verma


In this paper, the peristaltic transport of a Newtonian bio-fluid through
a tube of an elliptic cross-section is studied by considering the longitudinal
motion of the wall. It is shown that the transport of the bio-fluid increases as
the eccentricity of the tube decreases or the amplitude of the wave increases.

Keywords and Phrases : Peristaltic transport, Newtonian bio-fluid, elliptic
tube, longitudinal motion
