In this article, an initial and boundary value problem for variable coefficients coupled KdV–Burgers equation is considered. With the help of Lie group approach, initial and boundary value problem for variable coefficients coupled KdV–Burgers equation reduced to an initial value problem for nonlinear third-order ordinary differential equations (ODEs). Moreover, the systems of ODEs are solved to obtain soliton solutions. Further, classical fourth-order Runge–Kutta method is applied to systems of ODEs for constructing numerical solutions of coupled KdV–Burgers equation. Numerical solutions are computed, and accuracy of numerical scheme is assessed by applying the scheme half mesh principal to calculate maximum errors.
