Bio-Bi-phase flow, Particulate fluid, peristaltic flow, electro-magneto-hydrodynamics


The present article aims to probe the impacts of electro-magneto-hydrodynamics (EMHD) peristaltic flow of in-compressible, dusty, non-Newtonian fluid in a hose of predetermined dimension together with homogeneously scattered analogous rigid particles. In the presence of transversal static magnetic field, Navier-Stokes’s equations are employed to design a flow problem for the particulate phase. Governing flow problem is simplified by approximation of long wavelength and zero Reynolds number. The analytical solution for both velocities (solid-liquid) and pressure rise is computed by using well known computational software Mathematica. Perturbation method is employed to extract analytical solution of the resulting ordinary differential equations. Impacts of different physical parameters, expansion in trapped bolus for fluid and particulate velocity profile by increasing Hartmann number are displayed and explained through graphs. Furthermore, a rise in skin friction is noticed with the rise in particle effect and electro-osmotic parameter. This study may have greater significance and viable applications to improve the quality of micro-fluidic devices.
