In this study, the residual correction method is employed to predict the temperature distribution during laser heating process. The energy transfer induced by laser irradiation in the solid is described by Fourier's law of conduction with an energy source modeled by Beer's law. The approximate solution of temperature field is obtained by residual correction. Using the residual correction method, the precise average value of upper and lower approximate solutions is obtained and the error range between the analytical solution and the numerical solution can be analyzed. The results reveal that this method is an effective numerical method with satisfactory accuracy.
