This paper deals with the problem of automatic software detection of the heat-affected area on the surface of the material sample modified by the laser beam. This detection is necessary for simulation purposes. At the beginning, the paper gives a short overview about the laser burning process that is planned to be simulated and for which the real data has to be processed. The main part of the paper describes problems and aims of methods for the automatic detection and the description is concentrated on the statistical method. Finally, the results of the existing algorithms are compared with the newly designed statistical method.
