Abstract

In this work, an incompressible viscous Couette flow is derived by simplifying the Navier-Stokes equations and the resulting one dimensional linear parabolic partial differential equation is solved numerically employing a second order finit difference Crank-Nicolson scheme. The numerical solution and the exact solution are presented graphically.
