We apply a reduced-order method based on B-spline Galerkin finite elements formulation to Rosenau-RLW equation for the first time and explain their process in detail. The ensemble of snapshots is very large generally, and it is difficult to apply POD to the ensemble of snapshots directly. Hence, we try to pick up important snapshots among the whole data. In this paper, we represent three different reduced-order schemes. First, the classical POD technique is examined. Second, (equally sampled snapshots) are exploited for POD technique. Finally, afterward sampling snapshots by CVT, for those snapshots, POD technique is implemented again.
