Abstract

The paper concerns the computer simulation of heat flow induced on matter by laser irradiation in presence of heat sources or sinks. The model is 3D analytical and accounts for the dependence of thermal properties of matter on temperature. The results describe in particular the effect of a heat source due to a local phase change or solid state reaction releasing energy in a point of the laser affected zone. The purpose of the paper is to evidence how this additional energy affects the thermal field and then the heating and cooling rates.
