In this paper, a reduced-order modeling(ROM) of Burgers equations is studied based on pseudo-spectral collocation method. A ROM basis is obtained by the proper orthogonal decomposition(POD). Crank-Nicolson scheme is applied in time discretization and the pseudo-spectral element collocation method is adopted to solve linearlized equation based on the Newton method in spatial discretization. We deliver POD-based algorithm and present some numerical experiments to show the efficiency of our proposed method.
