In this article, we investigate the thermal effect on particulate fluid suspension with peristaltic transport in catheterized pipe taking the proposition of long wavelength and low Reynolds number into consideration. The equations governing both the fluid and particle phases were utilized. The physical terms for the streamlines, heat transfer, and velocity at the catheter walls have been deduced. The influence of various parameters under study on the fluid suspension, catheter size, and flow rate are scrutinized. It has been noticed that for any particle concentration, the flow decelerates with increasing the flow rate, catheter size, and amplitude ratio for both slip and nonslip conditions. It has also been found that the flow accelerates in cases with catheterized tubes more than those with uncatheterized ones and that the temperature is enhanced with increasing the catheter size. The physical features of the pertinent parameters are duly investigated through the graphs.
