In this study, a new composite algorithm with the help of the finite difference and the modified cubic trigonometric B-spline differential quadrature method is developed. The developed method was applied to two-dimensional coupled Burgers' equation with initial and Dirichlet boundary conditions for computational modeling. The established algorithm is better than the traditional differential quadrature algorithm proposed in literature due to more smoothness of cubic trigonometric B-spline functions. In the development of the algorithm, the first step is semidiscretization in time with the forward finite difference method. Furthermore, the obtained system is fully discretized by the modified cubic trigonometric B-spline differential quadrature method. Finally, we obtain coupled Lyapunov systems of linear equations, which are analyzed by the MATLAB solver for the system. Moreover, comparative study of these solutions with the numerical and exact solutions which are appeared in the literature is also discussed. Finally, it is found that there is good suitability between exact solutions and numerical solutions obtained by the developed composite algorithm. The technique can be extended for various multidimensional Burgers' equations after some modifications.
