Abstract

To understand the influence of an inserted endoscope and magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) power-law fluid on peristaltic motion, an attempt has been made for flow through tubes. The magnetic field of uniform strength is applied in the transverse direction to the flow. The analysis has been performed under long wavelength at low-Reynolds number assumption. The velocity fields and axial pressure gradient have been evaluated analytically. Numerical results are also presented and discussed.
