Comments
 Lasermatter interaction requires material laws enabling different phases: solid, liquid, and gas. It also needs to have a correct behavior with high pressure (several megabars) and high temperatures (more than 10000K). /MAT/LAW26 (SESAM) must also be used.
 This option is available only in 2D analysis.
 Plasma elements must be entered in the order from laser to target.
 It is assumed the laser beam is perpendicular to the target.
 ${K}_{S}=67000{\left(\frac{\rho}{{w}_{A}}\right)}^{2}$ is taken from K. Daree's plasma ignition model.
