The flow induced by sinusoidal peristaltic waves of a particle-fluid suspension in a twodimensional diverging channel under low Reynolds number and long wavelength approximation has been investigated. The analytical expression for the flow characteristics-the flow rate, pressure rise and friction force have been derived. Moreover, we present some results concerning the dependence of these quantities on the geometrical parameters.
