Attachment of lightning flashes to grounded structures
2012 (English)In: Lightning Electromagnetics / [ed] Vernon Cooray, IET , 2012, 765-787 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
A grounded structure can interact with a lightning flash in two different ways. It can interact with either a downward or an upward lightning flash. The initiation of a downward lightning flash takes place in the cloud, whereas in the case of upward lightning flash, the point of initiation is usually at the tip of a tall structure. In other words, upward lightning flashes are created by the grounded structure itself. In this chapter, a brief description of various models used to study the lightning attachment is given together with some of their predictions.
