The flow of a viscous fluid due to symmetric peristaltic waves propagating on the horizontal sidewalls of a rectangular duct is studied under the assumptions of long wavelength and low Reynolds number. The effect of aspect ratio $_\beta$, ratio of height to width, on the pumping characteristics is discussed in detail. The results are compared to with those corresponding to Poiseuille flow.
