Lattice Boltzmann method is one of computational fluid dynamic subdivisions. Despite complicated mathematics involved in its background, end simple relations dominate on it; so in comparison to the conventional computational fluid dynamic methods, simpler computer programs are needed. Due to its characteristics for parallel programming, this method is considered efficient for the simulation of complex geometry flows, in which a large amount of computational memories is needed. Because of the curved boundaries in the complex geometries, detecting the proper curved boundary condition is unavoidable for the lattice Boltzmann method. For this purpose, more works have been done, and different curved boundary conditions have been proposed. At the present work, first, some curved boundary conditions have been reviewed; then a simplified curved boundary condition is proposed. A computer program based on the lattice Boltzmann method, in FORTRAN language, has been prepared; in this program, the boundary condition along with some others applied on it is proposed. To verify the accuracy and correctness of the proposed boundary condition, 2D cavity flow has been simulated and compared to the available numerical results. Adaptation of the achieved results with those of previous researchers verifies the prepared program correctness. Also, two fluid flows have been simulated, a flow around a stationary cylinder in a 2D channel and one between two stationary and moving cylinders. The results of simulations with the proposed boundary condition, along with the previous boundary conditions, have been compared to the available results. Comparisons demonstrate that solutions with proper accuracy could be obtained by the proposed boundary condition.
