The purpose of this article is to evaluate the performance of an irregular grids finite volume method described in previous article with the use of standard test problem. In this regard, lid-driven cavity and skewed cavity flow have assessed the accuracy of the algorithm. The ability of the method to handle complex geometry is illustrated through some examples of airflow distribution in buildings with complex geometric configuration.
