Simulate moving laser beam on a plate in ANSYS

Hi everyone!

I've been trying ansys for a few weeks but in vain. I'm trying to inject a heat source(laser) on a 2D rect plate. I'm not sure on the corrct way to add the boundary conditions. This is what I do:

1. assuming room temp so i added 298K to the bottom, left and right using define loads >add_temp>lines i inject a heat source say 1000K using define loads>add_temp_on nodes to a few surface center nodes (meaning the top surface still have undefine boundary conditions)  

So is this the correct way and how can i include the missing boundary conditions?

With that, i would also like to simulate a moving heat source (laser with a gaussian beam distribution ) with some scanning speed say 100mm/s on a rectangular plate. How can i achieve that? It'll be good if anyone can provide me with a step by step guide on this.

Thanks a million!!  =))
