In this work numerical simulation of a non-Newtonian fluid flow over a step has been studied by using mesh free method. The characteristic based split mesh free algorithm is used for numerical simulation of fluid flow. This mesh free algorithm has been developed based on the general characteristic based split finite element method. The mesh free results obtained from characteristic based split algorithm have been compared to those of the finite element. The effect of different fluid parameters on the solution has been discussed. Numerical results have been verified by experimental and other numerical data reported in literature.
