Paper Abstract

As experience has unfolded, Laser Fare has been presented with a variety of aerospace hardware components requiring anywhere from one to thousands of holes. Further experience has indicated that'aircraft engine manufacturers, in constantly striving to decrease fuel consumption yet improve performance, have been faced with operating certain components at higher temperatures than ever before. In an effort to prevent the engine from turning into a glob of molten metal, it has become evident that a flow of cooling air is essential on some components and a more uniform mixture of combustion gases apparently is required in others.
