Graphical Abstract:


Recently, Hasona et al. Aimed to investigate the influence of thermal radiation and magnetic field on the peristaltic flow of Carreau nanofluid in a vertical asymmetric channel. The authors have considered the Joule heating, viscous dissipation, chemical reaction, Brownian motion, thermophoresis, Soret, and Dufour effects in their study. Several mistakes and typos were discovered in the study mentioned above, which would affect the obtained results. This report outlines some of these mistakes with suggested corrections to attract the readers' attention through a more in-depth insight into analyzing and exposing these defects.

Keywords: Variable thermal conductivity, Soret and Schmidt numbers, peristaltic pumping, Carreau fluid, chemical reaction, nanoparticles.
