An irregular grids finite volume procedure is presented for flows in complex geometries. The technique carried out computation in the physical plane itself, without any coordinate transformation. Equations are written in Cartesian velocity components and are discrete in physical domain using a cell-centred, staggered grid finite volume method. It is shown that the present formulation ensures that computational scheme is diagonally dominant.
