%X Magnetohydrodynamic(MHD) peristaltic flow of a Couple Stress Fluid through a permeable channel is examined in this investigation. The flow analysis is performed in the presence of an External Magnetic Field. Long wavelength and low Reynolds number approach is implemented. Mathematical expressions of axial velocity, pressure gradient and volume flow rate are obtained. Pressure rise, frictional force and pumping phenomenon are portrayed and symbolized graphically. The elemental characteristics of this analysis is a complete interpretation of the influence of Couple Stress Parameter, magnetic number, non dimensional amplitude ratio and permeability parameter on the velocity, pressure gradient, pressure rise and frictional forces.
