Numerical study of two dimensional lid driven triangular cavity flow is performed via using lattice Boltzmann method on low Reynolds numbers. The equilateral triangular cavity is the first geometry to be studied, the simulation is performed at Reynolds number 500 and the numerical prediction is compared with previous work done by other scholars. Several isosceles triangular cavities are studied at different initial conditions, Reynolds numbers ranging from 100 to 3000, regardless of the geometry studied, the top lid is always moving from left to right and the driven velocity remains constant. Results are also compared with previous work performed by other scholars, the agreement is very good. According to the authors’ knowledge, this is the first time that MRT-LBM model is used to simulate the flow inside the triangular cavities. One of the advantages of this method is that it is capable of producing at low and high Reynolds numbers.
