Paper Abstract

Techniques are described for modeling and analysis of composite materials exposed to laser radiation. The models consider pyrolysis of the organic resin matrix, convective transport of the gaseous pyrolysis products, and thermochemical ablation of the irradiated surface. Examples are provided of comparisons between measured materials response data and model predictions for exposures to both continuous wave (CW) and repetitively pulsed (RP) lasers.
