Heat Transfer Analysis on Transport of Copper Nanofluids Due to Metachronal Waves of Cilia
Noreen Sher Akbar,
Adil Wahid Butt,
The purpose of present investigation is to describe ciliary motion of the transport of fluids in human body
based on the mathematical model of the copper nanofluid with pure water as the base fluid. We considered that the group
of cilia operate together and produce metachronal waves to transport the fluid at the walls of a tube of finite length. The
expressions for exact solutions of the aforementioned problem have been obtained and the results have been discussed
graphically for velocity, temperature and pressure gradient for different physical quantities.
Keywords: Cilia, copper nanofluids, heat transfer, metachronal waves.
