Simulation of lightning on aircraft

Post by Alexandre Douce » Fri Sep 04, 2009 12:45 am

Calculations were made by ONERA (french aerospace laboratory), showing the first twenty milliseconds of arc lightning interaction with aircraft material. The electric current is set at 200A. The color coding corresponds to 3 isothermal plasma. This model uses a mesh containing approximately 1 million cells.
