The nonlinear simulation of the collisional drift-tearing mode is performed using a reduced two-fluid model, and the characteristics of poloidal flow generated by the drift-tearing mode is investigated. It is found that poloidal flow extends to the outside of magnetic islands. It is also found that ion viscosity is an important parameter for determining the pattern of poloidal flow.
