Model of Structural Damage to Carbon Fibre Composites due to Thermo-Electric Effects of Lightning Strikes

Chippendale, Richard D., Golosnoy, Igor O., Lewin, Paul L., Murugan, G.S. and Lambert, Jack (2010) Model of Structural Damage to Carbon Fibre Composites due to Thermo-Electric Effects of Lightning Strikes At International Conference on Lightning Strike Protection, Italy. 13 - 17 Sep 2010. , 1113/1-1113/5.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


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.
