Hi every body,

I am a bigginer in LBM. I have written a MATLAB code for Lid-Driven cavity problem.

Although it seems that my code is OK, I could not get the correct figure.

I spent one month or more and I got crazy! By the way, for seeing the streamlines, is it correct to use “contour” command (the last line in my code)?!

I would greatly appriciate any help.

my code is as follows:

```
