The existing analysis deals with heat transfer occurrence on peristaltic transport of a Carreau fluid in a rectangular duct. Flow is scrutinized in a wave frame of reference moving with velocity c away from a fixed frame. A peristaltic wave propagating on the horizontal side walls of a rectangular duct is discussed under lubrication approximation. In order to carry out the analytical solution of velocity, temperature, and pressure gradient, the homotopy perturbation method is employed.
