In the current research study, a mathematical modeling is developed that is associated with the transportation phenomena due to peristaltic waves in a curve. Because of the complex nature of the regime, curvilinear coordinates are used to govern the system of equations in a fixed frame of reference and then converted into a wave frame by using linear transformations. The analysis is restricted under the creeping hydrodynamic and long wavelength assumptions. The impact of embedded physical parameters, i.e., the dimensionless curvature parameter, phase difference, and nonuniform parameters on the velocity profile, pumping, and trapping phenomena is discussed in detail. Another imperative phenomenon is also discussed that is associated with a comparative study between trains of peristaltic wave and single peristaltic wave propagations on the motion of an incompressible viscous fluid. The results of a straight channel are retrieved from both simple and wavy channels when taking the large value of the radius of the curvature. The pressure gradient in the straight channel is observed to be greater than in the curved channel.
