We present a physical description of the formation and propagation of the working surface inside the relativistic jet of  the Blazar PKS 1510-089 is used to model its gamma-ray variability light curve using FERMI-LAT data from 2008 to 2012. The physical model is based on conservation laws of mass and momentum at the working surface as explained by (Mendoza, 2009) . The hydrodynamical description of the working surface is parametrised by the initial velocity and mass injection rate at the base of the jet. We show that periodic variations on the injected velocity profiles are able to account for the observed luminosity.  With this, we are able to obtain mass ejection rates of the central engine which are injected at the base of the jet, and oscillation frequencies of the flow, amongst other physical parameters.
