This paper look at the effects of heat transfer on peristaltic flow of Walter's B fluid in an asymmetric channel. The regular perturbation method is used to solve the governing equations by taking the wave number as the small parameter. Expressions for stream function, temperature distribution, and heat transfer coefficient are presented in explicit form. Solutions are analyzed graphically for different values of arising parameters. It has been found that these parameters affect considerably the considered flow characteristics. Results show that with an increase in the Eckert and Prandtl numbers, the temperature and heat transfer coefficient increase. Further, the absolute value of the heat transfer coefficient increases with an increasing viscoelastic parameter. Comparison with published results for viscous fluid is also presented.
