In this paper, a finite difference scheme based on the splitting-up technique and cubic spline approximations is developed for solving modified coupled Burgers' equations. The accuracy and stability of the scheme have been analyzed. It is found that the scheme is of first-order accuracy in time and second-order accuracy in space direction and is unconditionally stable. The numerical results are obtained with severe/moderate gradients in the initial and boundary conditions and the steady state solutions are plotted for different values of given parameters. It is concluded that the resulting scheme produces satisfactory results, even in the case of very severe gradient in the solution, and is applicable at both low and high Reynolds numbers. Also, the general nature of the proposed scheme provides a wider application in the solution of non-linear problems arising in mechanics and other areas.
