Hello Everyone,


Heat Source: Gaussian

Please see the attached figure.

In Fig 1: Region 2 is selected only and and the final maximum temperature is about 500K only.

In Fig 2: Both regions are selcted and and the final maximum temperature is about 3500K only but in the upper side which is assigned for vapor region.

Note: I have also attached the solvers log screenshot just in case if it helps.

What I want: The keyhole should be in the region 2. It should be more like of figure 1 (Position/shape wise) but with the temperature about 3500K.

I do not know what I'm doing wrong. Please comment if anyone has any clue what I'm doing wrong. Would really be appreciated.
