This paper resigns to study effects of electro-kinetic force due to presence of electrical charge layer on the walls of the channel. The nano-bio-fluid fills the void between two concentric curved plates. The flow is induced due to peristaltic wave on flexible walls. The effects of mixed convection along with heat transfer are accounted. Furthermore, the focus is on effects of shapes of non-spherical nanoparticles in nano-bio-fluid and its effects on the flow. Nanofluids are important in treatment of cancer and other diseases in tissues which are normally not reachable by normal drug procedures. The problem is modeled for four types of non-spherical nanoparticles of alumina in aqueous base fluid. Numerical solution is obtained using Mathematica. Some important results are displaced through graphs. Empirical observations display that a significantly greater velocity for nanofluid with blade shape particles is offered followed by brick shaped particles. Numerical experiment also deems a rise in heat transfer due to presence of blade shapes particles.
Key words: Nano-bio-fluids / non-spherical nanoparticles / electro-osmosis / mixed convection / curved channel
