Abstract: We report the results of a numerical simulation of the barred galaxy NGC 4314. We start with a gaseous isothermal, non-self gravitating disk, initially in rotational equilibrium, which is perturbed by the gravitational potential of the bar estimated in Quillen, Frogel & González (1994) using near-infrared observations. We then calculate the gas orbits in the region of the bar and compare them with stellar orbits obtained by Patsis (2006).
