Numerous researchers have probed the peristaltic flows because of their immense usage in industrial engineering, biomedical engineering and biological sciences. However, the investigation of peristaltic flow in two-phase fluid of a rotating frame in the presence of a magnetic field has not been yet discussed. Therefore, to fulfill this gap in the existing literature, this paper will explicate the peristaltic flow of two-phase fluid across a rotating channel with the effect of wall properties in the presence of a magnetic field. The purpose of this study is to investigate the two-phase velocity distribution and rotation parameter when magneto-hydrodynamics is applied.
The constituent equations are solved under the condition of low Reynolds number and long wavelength. The exact method is used to attain the subsequent equations and a comprehensive graphical study for fluid phase, particulate phase velocity and flow rates are furnished. The impacts of pertinent parameters, magnetic field and rotation are discussed in detail.
It is witnessed that the velocity profile of particulate phase gets higher values for the same parameters as compared to the fluid phase velocity. Moreover, the axial velocity increases with different values of particle volume fraction, but in case of magnetic field and rotation parameter, it shows the opposite behavior.
The outcomes of study have viable industrial implementations in systems comprising solid-liquid based flows of fluids involving peristaltic movement.
