Abstract

Many sectors using high technology need to use materials with more than one property. Reinforced plastics (FRP) have been used frequently in the transportation and energy sectors because of its superior specific mechanical properties especially high strength-to-weight ratio. Lasers are often used in cutting, drilling and surface treatments since they have the ability to perform high energy transfer in various forms. Because of the quality degradation in the laser process, especially in the efficient processing of FRPs, high energy and other laser parameters compatible with these energy levels are required. Thermal damage is one of the most important parameters affecting the quality of FRPs.
