Hi all,

I will soon be trying to model the motion of a viscoelastic material moving through a radially symmetric channel by peristaltic pumping.

I was hoping for some expert opinion on what is the best way to approach this. Over the next few weeks I will be building up a mathematical model and then trying to solve this (probably numerically). What would be some good software to try for this purpose?

I should point out that I have lots of Matlab experience, but none with other software, however, I am willing to learn.

OpenFoam has been suggested.

What do you all think?

Thank you in advance
