Wall properties effect has been investigated on the peristaltic flow of Casson fluid in a channel by assuming long wavelength and low Reynolds number. The governing equations are solved analytically to find the expression for velocity and stream function. The effect of different parameters of wall and fluid properties on the velocity and stream function is discussed through graphs. The results obtained create interest among young researchers to concentrate on the wall effects of different types of Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids in the presence of peristalsis.
