Some Enlightening Case Histories on Lightning Damage
T. S. Key, D. Nastasi, K. O. Phipps, Francois D. Martzloff
Lightning related damage stories abound, but it is not always possible to document precisely the mechanisms and scenarios involved when timely, first-hand knowledge is not obtainable. From a collection of case histories accumulated by the authors, three cases are described. Each of the three illustrates a different mechanism leading to equipment failure, in ways that might not have been obvious from a casual investigation of the damage or sites, or from second-hand reports.
