The present investigation is carried out to examine the ciliary flow of viscous nanofluid in a curved channel with wall properties. The governing equations are simplified under the well-known assumptions of long wavelength and low Reynolds number. Closed-form solutions for the nanoparticle temperature, velocity and streamlines are calculated and discussed. Numerical results for the velocity profile are also available in a table, for increasing values of the cilia length parameter.
