This paper is concerned with numerical study of the two-sided lid-driven fluid flow in a staggered cavity. The ANSYS FLUENT commercial software was used for the simulation, In one of the simulated cases the lids are moving in opposite directions (antiparallel motion) and in the other they move in the same direction (parallel motion). Calculation results for various Re numbers are presented in the form of flow patterns and velocity profiles along the central lines of the cavity. The results are compared with the existing data from the literature. In general, a good agreement is found, especially in the antiparallel motion, while in the parallel motion the same flow pattern is found, but the velocity profiles are slightly different.
