The first order splitting method is applied to the Burgers' equation and two numerical algorithms are set up for this time-splitted Burgers' equation using both quadratic and cubic B-spline Galerkin finite element techniques. The unknowns in the equation is resolved with the B-splines in space and standart Crank-Nicolson differencing schemes is used to advance solution in time. Results of three numerical test problems are used to compare each schemes with available some results. © 2004 Elsevier Inc. All rights reversed.
