The rheology of a two-dimensional granular gas under a plane shear is investigated. From the comparison among the discrete element method, the simulation of a set of hydrodynamic equation, and the analytic solution of the steady hydrodynamic equations, it is confirmed that the fluid equations derived from the kinetic theory give us accurate results even in relatively high density cases.
