This thesis describes the implementation of a

two-dimensional heat transfer simulation

system using a Splash-2 Custom Computing

Machine (CCM). This application was

implemented as a proof of concept for

utilizing CCMs in the simulation of physical

systems. This paper discusses physical

systems simulation and the need for

discretizing the domain of such systems,

along with the techniques used for

mathematical simulation. Also discussed is

the nature of CCMs, and why they are well

suited to this application. A detailed

description of the approach and

implementation is included to full document

the design, along with an analysis of the

performance of the resulting system.
