In this work, the lattice Boltzmann (LB) method was applied to simulate incompressible steady and unsteady low Reynolds number (Re) flows around a confined cylinder. In the LB method, different collision models (Bhatnagar–Gross–Krook model, two-relaxation-time model, multi-relaxation-time model, and entropic lattice Boltzmann model) and a regularization model were used, and the results were compared. Numerical results pertaining to a two-dimensional flow around a cylinder are reported and compared with numerical and experimental data available in the literature. The results agree with the predictions made from the literature. A correlation for Strouhal number (St) for 55 ≤ Re ≤ 300 is suggested.
