We propose a procedure for the numerical analysis of the structural state of steel plates caused by the action of moving distributed heat sources. With the help of an additional source whose intensity is five times lower that the intensity of the main source, one can halve the maximum content of martensite and, thus, significantly weaken the undesirable consequences of local heating. The results of the proposed investigation can be used in the development of the optimal technological procedures aimed at the minimization of residual welding stresses.
