A novel meshless numerical technique to solve computational fluid dynamics-heat transfer problems is introduced. The theory behind the newly proposed technique hereafter named “The Meshless Control Volume Method” is explained and a number of examples illustrating the implementation of the method is presented. In this study, the technique is applied for one and two dimensional transient heat conduction as well as one and two dimensional advection-diffusion problems. Compared to other methods including the exact solution, the results show to be highly accurate for the considered cases. Being a meshless technique, the control volumes are arbitrary chosen, and they posses simple shapes which contrary to the existing control volume methods can overlap. The number of points within each control volume and, therefore the degree of interpolation can be different throughout the considered computational domain. Since the control volumes are of simple shapes, the integrals can be evaluated analytically.
