The thesis work models the squeezing of the tube and computes the fluid motion of a peristaltic pump. The simulations have been conducted by using COMSOL Multiphysics FSI module. The model is setup in axis symmetric with several simulation cases to have a clear understanding of the results. The model captures total displacement of the tube, velocity magnitude, and average pressure fluctuation of the fluid motion. A clear understanding and review of many mathematical and physical concepts are also discussed with their applications in real field. In order to solve the problems and work around the resource constraints, a thorough understanding of mass balance and momentum equations, finite element concepts, arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian method, one-way coupling method, two-way coupling method, and COMSOL Multiphysics simulation setup are understood and briefly narrated.
