Abstract

This work concerns the peristaltic flow of a Williamson fluid model in an inclined asymmetric channel under combined effects of heat and mass transfer. The governing nonlinear partial differential equations are simplified under the lubrication approach and then solved analytically and numerically. The analytical results are computed with the help of regular perturbation and the numerical results are found by using shooting method.
