The flow pattern in a two-dimensional lid-driven semi-circular cavity is analyzed using the lattice Boltzmann method (LBM). The treatment of curved boundary with second-order accuracy is used. The streamline contours as well as dimensionless velocity component along the central line of a semi-circular cavity are obtained for different Reynolds numbers. The numerical results show that the LBM can capture the formation of primary, secondary and tertiary vortices exactly as the Reynolds number increases and has a great agreement with those of current literatures.
