Selection and peer-review under responsibility of COE of Sustainalble Energy System, Rajamangala University of Technology Thanyaburi (RMUTT) doi: / 10th Eco-Energy and Materials Science and Engineering (EMSES) Analysis of Lightning Phenomena for Underground Cited by: 2. Traditional lightning protection systems are described in Appendix L of the Edition of NFPA [National Fire Protection Association, ]. Appendix L describes a system which provides a low-impedance path to carry the large currents of lightning discharges to ground, preventing damage to the protected structure.

"Lightning Physics and Effects is not a lightning book; it is a lightning encyclopedia. Rarely in the history of science has one contribution covered a subject with such depth and thoroughness as to set the enduring standard for years, perhaps even decades, to come The overall quality of the printing is superb; the figures are excellent, and the Plate Section presents six classic pages of Cited by: Lightning Damage. There are four basic types of lightning damage: physical damage, secondary effect damage, electromagnetic effect damage, and damage caused by changes in ground reference potential. Physical damage is caused by current flow and heat. A typical lightning strike in the United States conveys betw amps, with the higher amperage strikes occurring in the . S.

  Shows the fundamental processes of the lightning phenomenon, and helps the reader to understand the measures of protection against lightning damage. Offers a new theory and calculation method to estimate the efficiency of lightning air termination systems, which helps to evaluate the residual risk of the lightning protection system.

Lightning Damage Lightning is the transient passage of electrical current between a cloud and either the surface of the earth, or another cloud, etc. Part of the lightning current can be carried inside a building by electric power, telephone, analog or digital data lines (e.g., closed circuit television cameras, sensors in an industrialFile Size: 23KB.
