We numerically investigate Josephson vortex flow states in layered high-T c superconductors motivated by a recent experimental observation for accurate periodic magnetic field dependences of the Josephson vortex flow resistance over a wide range of magnetic field (0:5-4:0 T). We confirm in our mesoscale simulations that dynamical matching of Josephson vortex lattice with sample edge is responsible for the periodic dependence. The present simulations reveal that the Josephson vortex lattice flow
