The two-dimensional flow in a two-sided lid-driven cavity is often handled numerically for the same imposed wall velocities (symmetrical driving) either for parallel or antiparallel wall motion. However, in this study, we present a finite volume method (FVM) based on the second scheme of accuracy to numerically explore the steady two-dimensional flow in a two-sided lid-driven square cavity for antiparallel wall motion with different imposed wall velocities (asymmetrical driving). The top and the bottom walls of the cavity slide in opposite directions simultaneously at different velocities related to various imposed velocity ratios, λ = -2, -6, and -10, while the two remaining vertical walls are stationary. The results show that varying the velocity ratio and consequently the Reynolds ratios have a significant effect on the flow structures and fluid properties inside the cavity.
