We study the initial-boundary problem of dissipative symmetric regularized long wave equations with damping term. Crank-Nicolson nonlinear-implicit finite difference scheme is designed. Existence and uniqueness of numerical solutions are derived. It is proved that the finite difference scheme is of second-order convergence and unconditionally stable by the discrete energy method. Numerical simulations verify the theoretical analysis.
