Abstract

This article investigates with the peristaltic flow of a Williamson nano fluid in an asymmetric channel. The related modeling of the problem has been done in Cartesian coordinate system. Problem has been simplified with the reliable assumptions i.e. long wave length and small Reynolds number. Numerical solutions have been evaluated for stream function, velocity profile, temperature profile, nano particle phenomena and pressure rise. Graphical results have been presented and discussed for various involved parameters.
