Several interesting phenomena have been observed simulating two-dimensional decaying turbulence in bounded domains. In this paper, an overview is given about our observations obtained by simulating freely decaying turbulence in different regular polygon shaped containers with no-slip walls. For these simulations the lattice Boltzmann method has been used as a numerical approach. The initial Reynolds number based on the container dimension was in the order of 10,000. The initial condition was the same in each simulation, therefore, we were able to compare the effect of geometrical constraints on the evolution of relevant physical quantities such as the kinetic energy and the enstrophy.
