The behavior of vapour bubble in superheated liquid in a vertical cylindrical tube between two-phase flow densities is discussed under the effect of peristaltic motion of long wavelength and low Reynolds number. The mathematical model is formulated by mass, momentum, and heat equations. The problem solved analytically to estimate the growth of vapour bubbles, temperature and velocity distributions. The growth of vapour bubbles, temperature and velocity distribution proportional with the amplitude ratio, Grashof number, heat source parameter, volume rate, and inversely with density fraction. The present results of bubble growth performed lower values than that obtained by Mohammadein model (2001).
