Abstract: A system of nonautonomous partial differential equations describing the steady flow of an incompressible fluid is considered. The existence of a strong solution of that system is proved under suitable assumptions on the data. In the 2D-case this solution turns out to be of class $ C^{1,\alpha}$.
