The present paper investigates the peristaltic flow of Newtonian fluids through the porous medium. The effects of electroosmosis mechanism on peristaltic pumping are also considered. An analytical solution is obtained under lubrication approach. Poisson Boltzmann equations are also simplified using Debye linearization. The effects of permeability parameter, electrical double layer thickness and electro-osmotic parameter on the flow characteristics, pressure distribution and shear stress distributions are computed. Numerical computations reveal that electroosmosis and permeability play vital role in peristaltic pumping. The findings of present study may be applicable in biomedical engineering and chemical engineering where peristaltic micropumps may be designed.
