    ABSTRACT: Mixed convection flow is one of the essential criteria of fluid flow and heat transfer. And its application has been increased due to modernization of society. So, to compete with the global world an analysis has been investigated numerically. In this study we have considered 2D double lid driven cavity with two-sided adiabatic walls. This problem is illustrated mathematically by a collection of governing equations and the developed model has been solved numerically by using Finite Difference Method (FDM). The goal of the present study is to analyze numerically the thermal behaviour and parameters effect on heat transfer inside the 2D chamber. Also this analysis has been observed for the case where the upper wall is moving at positive direction and lower wall is moving at negative direction with constant speed. Furthermore, we have tried to analyze the velocity and temperature profiles for a vast range of dimensionless parameters namely Reynolds number (Re), Richardson number (Ri)and Prandtl number(Pr)and presented graphically. Moreover, it is found that these flow parameters have significant effects in controlling the flow behavior inside the cavity. A comparison has been done to validate our code and found a good agreement. Finally, average Nusselt number (Nu)has been studied for the effects of these parameters and presented in tabular form.
