Lightning Protection for Engineers: An Illustrated Guide for Critical High Value Facilities in Accord with Recognized Codes and Standards by National Lightning Safety Institue (NLSI /5(4).
This book deals with the mature, fully-developed discharge in the form of natural lightning. About pages explain the initiation of the lightning discharge, using research from the authors’ earlier work, but they take pains to modify it from Spark Discharge’s pages covering laboratory artificial discharges, Cited by: The new, edition of NLSI's book on Lightning Protection for Engineers, is Lighting protection book essential engineering reference.
Written in accordance with recognized codes and standards and with over illustrated pages, this book describes approved air terminals, downconductors, shielding, bonding, surge suppression, detectors, and personal safety. A lightning protection system consists of an external and an internal lightning protection system (presented in figure 1).
The functions of the external lightning protection system are: To intercept direct lightning strikes via an air-termination system; To safely conduct the lightning current to the ground via a down-conductor system.
History of Lightning Protection System Design in Tactical Sstems Many older communication systems do not have lightning protection incorporated into their design. Desigr ers thought that protection was not necessary in many cases because the antenna mast was relatively short (10 meters or less).
The need for greater capability inCited by: 2. Protect your people, processes and facility from lightning strikes. Lightning accounts for more than $1 billion annually in structural damage to buildings in the United States alone, according to Underwriters Laboratories, Inc.
Reliable protection of industrial and commercial operations and personnel demands a systematic and comprehensive approach to minimizing threats caused. Standard for the Installation of Lightning Protection Systems NFPA provides lightning protection system installation requirements to safeguard people and property from fire risk and related hazards associated with lightning exposure.
