Action of highly concentrated energy fluxes on materials

A numerical model making it possible to consider, with exhaustive completeness, processes that occur in the absorbing spatially inhomogeneous liquid medium on exposure to pulsed laser radiation has been presented. Numerical experiments have shown the efficiency of the presented procedure of calculation in a wide range of pulse durations (from micro- to femtosecond ones) and for typical energy parameters of laser systems.
