this is a terribly bad idea. building a cluster MUST be driven
by real, demonstrable needs, preferably several independent
researchers who are in physical pain because their simulations
are too slow ;)
wanting a cluster and then trying to dig up some justification for it
is a doomed approach.
but yes, heat-flow simulations are commonly run on clusters;
as far as I understand, they're not nearly as challenging
as simulations that involve mass flow or phase change
(gases, fluids, melting, etc).
