Abstract
Some possible qualitative models of nonstationary hydrodynamical phenomena in the melt surrounding the 'key-hole' in processes of laser beam or hole punching are presented. Different mechanisms of excitation of such nonstationarities are discussed: thermocapillary, evaporative and 'wind' instabilities of the surface of the melt; a 'shelf' instability of melt layers subjected to the action of intense laser irradiation. Estimations of the laser beam intensity value I and processing velocity v, representing the limits of different mechanisms of instabilities, are presented. The ranges of these two parameters are: I equals 104 - 107 W/cm2; v equals 10-1 - 102 cm/s. These estimations give some preliminary ideas concerning the choice of (I,v) range, which enables it to provide the stability and quality of deep penetration laser materials processing.
