In this paper, applications of a numerical model on simulation of two and three-dimensional ﬂows are presented. This model solves Navier-Stokes equations using ﬁnite volume method and large eddy simulation (LES) in a collocated mesh. Artiﬁcial compressibility method with dual t ime stepping is used to solve the time dependent equations. Also a modiﬁed m omentum i nterpolation method (MIM) based on the unsteady ﬂows i s deployed t o overcome t he non-physical pressure oscillation. Capability of the presented numerical code for ﬂow s imulation, i s a ssessed by a pplication f or twodimensional square and three-dimensional lid-driven cavity ﬂows. Numerical r esults of cavity ﬂow presents very good agreement with the numerical and experimental data of other existent researches.
