Abstract: 

This article explores the heat and transport characteristics of electroosmotic flow augmented with peristaltic transport of incompressible Carreau fluid in a wavy microchannel. In order to determine the energy distribution, viscous dissipation is reckoned. Debye Hückel linearization and long wavelength assumptions are adopted. Resulting non-linear problem is analytically solved to examine the distribution and variation in velocity, temperature and volumetric flow rate within the Carreau fluid flow pattern through perturbation technique. This model is also suitable for a wide range of biological microfluidic applications and variation in velocity, temperature and volumetric flow rate within the Carreau fluid flow pattern.
