We develop an effective domain decomposition meshless methodology for conjugate heat transfer problems modeled by convecting fully viscous incompressible fluid interacting with conducting solids. The meshless formulation for fluid flow modeling is based on a radial basis function interpolation using Hardy inverse Multiquadrics and a time-progression decoupling of the equations using a Helmholtz potential. The domain decomposition approach effectively reduces the conditioning numbers of the resulting algebraic systems, arising from convective and conduction modeling, while increasing efficiency of the solution process and decreasing memory requirements. Moreover, the domain decomposition approach is ideally suited for parallel computation. Numerical examples are presented to validate the approach by comparing the meshless solutions to finite volume method (FVM) solutions provided by a commercial CFD solver. (C) 2006 Elsevier Ltd.
