In this study, a numerical examination is portrayed which explores the idea of 3D reconnection, in the absence of magnetic null points focuses, at a segregated non-ideal region. We center around the subsequent conduct of the magnetic flux, which has been appeared D.I. Pontin et al. (2004), to be on a very basic level diverse in the kinematic routine from the natural two-dimensional conduct. The point of this numerical investigation is to test whether the new properties of 3D kinematic reconnection, depicted by D.I. Pontin et al. (2004) finish to the dynamical routine, where magnetohydrodynamics equations are unraveled. We point likewise specifically to check (or something else) the arrangement by G. Hornig and E.R. Priest (2003) for kinematic 3D reconnection without an magnetic null point
