The study concentrates on structural damage caused by the thermal effects of lightning strike to carbon fibre composites (CFC). The main objectives are to construct a model of the major physical effects involved, and to understand the correlation between the damage mechanisms and the damage witnessed in modern CFC. Model verification will be done by experimental decoupling of damage mechanisms, e.g. the real Joule heating from a lightning strike is replaced by a high power laser beam acting on composite surface. Outcomes from this study can then be used for further investigations and optimisation of lightning strike protection methods.
