The objective of the present investigation is to examine the influences of radial magnetic field on the peristalsis of Eyring–Powell liquid in a curved channel. The channel walls satisfy the convective conditions of heat transfer. Problem formulation is made using conservation laws of mass, linear momentum and energy. Perturbation solutions of the resulting problems for flow and temperature through lubrication approach are developed. Attention is mainly focused to the outcome of involved sundry parameters on the pressure gradient, pressure rise, frictional force, velocity and temperature. The phenomena of pumping and trapping are also analyzed.
