It has been seen that complex phenomena observed in non-Newtonian sheared fluid
can be explained by a simple model like the
1-d classical XY modelin the presence of external shear and noise .
We have studied this model in the absence of external noise, both in the
presence and absence of shear, using the Velocity Verlet algorithm. The model
shows rich spatio-temporal behaviour, such as spatio-temporal intermittency,
banded structure, phase separation and shared phases,
at distinct values of shear and dissipation parameters. The observed behaviour
is discussed, and further studies outlined.
