Abstract

2-D driven cavity flow is the widely studied benchmark problem by many researchers of computational fluid dynamics field in terms of accuracy, numerical efficiency and others. Lattice Boltzmann Method (LBM) is one of the numerical methods for simulating this type of flow. For solving cavity flow with high Reynolds Number, the saving in time consumption is really appreciated. Therefore, as the initial study, averaging method for reducing CPU time has been proposed for solving lid driven cavity flow with low Reynolds Number. The results show that the averaging method can save time consumed for simulation. For instance, in the case of Reynolds Number 80, the proposed averaging method can save about 12% of the original CPU time (without averaging method). ©2010 American Institute of Physics
