The nanoparticles are frequently used in biomedical science for the treatment of diseases like cancer and these nanoparticles are injected in blood which is transported in the cardiovascular system on the principle of peristalsis. This study elaborates the effects of Lorentz force and joule heating on the peristaltic flow of copper and iron oxide suspended blood based nanofluid in a complex wavy non-uniform curved channel. The Brinkman model is utilized for the temperature dependent viscosity and thermal conductivity. The problem is formulated using the fundamental laws in terms of coupled partial differential equations which are simplified using the creeping flow phenomenon. The graphical results for velocity, temperature, streamlines, and axial pressure are simulated numerically. The concluded observations deduce that the solid volume fraction of nanoparticles reduces the velocity and enhance the pressure gradient and accumulation of trapping bolus in the upper half of the curved channel is noticed for temperature dependent viscosity.
