The present work investigates the accuracy of the Multiple-relaxation-time Lattice Boltzmann Method (MRT LBM) in the simulation of flows with circulation. The flow in a 2Dlid-driven cavity is simulated using MRT LBM for a wide range of Reynolds numbers (100-1000) to assess its accuracy. The lid-driven cavity flow is selected because it is the standard benchmark problem for the testing of numerical methods. The calculated locations of the primary vortex center in addition to those of the two side vortices (lower-left and lower-right) are compared to the previously published results using different numerical techniques such as finite difference, finite element and single-relaxation-time LBM. The horizontal and vertical velocity profiles are also calculated. The results show that the MRT LBM has a superior accuracy compared to other numerical techniques especially for circulating flows.
