  1. 1. On the Attachment of Lightning Flashes to Grounded Structures

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Marley Becerra; Uppsala universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : Engineering physics; Lightning; Lightning attachment; Positive leader discharges; Lightning protection; Thunderstorms; Numerical modeling; Teknisk fysik;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with the physical modeling of the initiation and propagation of upward positive leader discharges from grounded structures during lightning strikes. It includes the analysis of upward leaders initiated under the influence of the electric field produced by a dominant negative cloud charge and due to the combined action of a negative thundercloud and a descending downward stepped negative leader.
