A method of shape representation, the multi-level partition of unity (MPU) implicit surface, is applied to a voxel based thermal fluid analysis. The MPU implicit surface allows us to construct surface models from very large sets of points with normal and polygon. An octree subdivision method is adapted to variations in the complexity of the local shape in the MPU. The MPU has a good compatibility with Cartesian based flow solvers. Some problems of fluid flow with heat transfer are solved. Advantages of this way are discussed.
