Analysis of lid driven square cavity flow of air with three different ranges of Ri and Re are analyzed using numerically. Adiabatic temperature is maintained at horizontal walls and isothermal temperature is established at the vertical walls in which the top wall is assumed to slide with a uniform speed. Finite volume method techniques have used to solve non dimensional governing equations. To visualize the flow and thermal characteristics, the control parameters, the Richardson number (Ri) and Reynolds number (Re) and in the range of 0.001 ≤ Ri ≤ 10 and 100 ≤ Re ≤ 400 are used for streamlines and isotherms.
