A mathematical model is presented to analyse the flow characteristics and heat transfer aspects of a heated Newtonian viscous fluid with single wall carbon nanotubes inside a vertical duct having elliptic cross section and sinusoidally fluctuating walls. Exact mathematical computations are performed to get temperature, velocity and pressure gradient expressions. A polynomial solution technique is utilized to obtain these mathematical solutions. Finally, these computational results are presented graphically and different characteristics of peristaltic flow phenomenon are examined in detail through these graphs. The velocity declines as the volume fraction of carbon nanotubes increases in the base fluid. Since the velocity of fluid is dependent on its temperature in this study case and temperature decreases with increasing volumetric fraction of carbon nanotubes. Thus velocity also declines for increasing volumetric fraction of nanoparticles.
