In this paper, we present a decoupled finite element scheme for two-dimensional time-dependent viscoelastic fluid flow obeying an Oldroyd-B constitutive equation. The key idea of our decoupled scheme is to divide the full problem into two subproblems, one is the constitutive equation which is stabilized by using discontinuous Galerkin (DG) approximation, and the other is the Stokes problem, can be computed parallel. The decoupled scheme can reduce the computational cost of the numerical simulation and implementation is easy. We compute the velocity $u$ and the pressure $p$ from the Stokes like problem, another unknown stress $σ$ from the constitutive equation. The approximation of stress, velocity and pressure are respectively, $P_1$-discontinuous, $P_2$-continuous, and $P_1$-continuous finite elements. The well-posedness of the finite element scheme is presented and derive the stability analysis of the decoupled algorithm. We obtain the desired error bound also demonstrate the order of the convergence, stability and the flow behavior with the support of two numerical experiments which reveals that decoupled scheme is more efficient than coupled scheme.
