In this article we first provide a priori estimates of the solution for the nonstationary two-dimensional viscoelastic fluid motion equations with periodic boundary condition. We then present an modified non-linear Galerkin method for solving such equations. By comparing the convergence rates of the proposed method with the standard Galerkin method, we conclude that the modified nonlinear Galerkin method is better than the standard Galerkin method because the former can save a large amount of computational work and maintain the convergence rate of the latter.
