Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


In simulating a laser drilling process, melting is one of several physical phenomenae that have to be modelled. Two different mathematical formulations of this laser induced melting are derived. For every formulation, we give a specific numerical recipe. Special attention is paid to problems where 'mushy regions' occur and to extension to 2-D. Finally, the numerical results of these different recipes are discussed. (C) 2003 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
