This paper presents numerical simulations of steady and oscillatory lid-driven cavity flow at different Reynolds numbers with a fixed aspect ratio of 1:1. A projection method (P2 pressure correction method) is applied to solve the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations. The code is validated by comparison with published works of steady lid-driven flow at Re = 100, 400 and 1000. Oscillatory lid-driven cavity flow at different Reynolds numbers (100, 400 and 1000) at a fixed oscillation frequency has been investigated. It is observed that the oscillatory lid-driven cavity flow is substantially affected by the Reynolds number.
