The paper presents a computer program for the calculation of contact mass loss in the case of evaporation, ablation and melting. It makes use of theoretical mathematical equations previously published by a lot of researchers. For the purposes of the program, an expert system algorithm was designed. The paper presents results obtained by means of the proposed program for silver, tungsten and copper.
