Laser Heating - A Self Guided Tutorial
Application ID: 12317
This tutorial shows how to model transient heat conduction in a glass slab heated by a laser beam. The tutorial emphasizes on the use of functions to model the laser power as a body heat source. Several key design variables have been parameterized. Suggestions on meshing and solver settings are provided.
Three different modes of operation are investigated.
- Stationary laser emitting constant power
- Stationary laser emitting power pulses
- Moving laser emitting constant power
