The study of the flow of an incompressible viscous liquid is greatly
simplified if discussion is limited to Stokes flow in which the Reynolds number is small enough for the non-linear inertia forces to be neglected in
comparison with the viscous forces so that the equations of motion
become linear. The Stokes flow approximation is a suitable model to take
for peristaltic motion since the velocities met in practice are small
and conditions at infinity are not considered. In this thesis, two...[Show more]
