The goal of this study is to understand the mechanics of a flexible magnetically-controllable fluid transport system. A two-dimensional time-dependent model using a coupled fluid-solid and magnetic model is developed. The flow of fluids through sinusoidal wall is modeled, numerically analyzed and compared with an analytical solution, for the passive case (i.e., zero applied magnetic field). The modeling and analysis are extended to include a magnetic field that is applied to the wall of the flexible tube in order to produce the one-way forward movement of the fluid. Results demonstrate the fluid transportation capabilities of the one-way transport system.
