Abstract

This study deals with the magnetohydrodynamics flow of viscous fluid induced by the ciliary propulsion in a porous medium which has an application to control diseases in respiratory track. A symplectic metachronal wave of the micro-organism is considered for the MHD fluid flow. The continuity and momentum equations are simplified under the long wave length and small Reynolds’ number approximation. The modeled partial differential equations are solved by analytical technique Fourier series expansion method. Velocity profile, stream function and pressure gradient are plotted to see the effect of magnetic field and porous medium.
