The advent of complex intelligent structures and low-voltage electronic installations within buildings requires increasingly sophisticated lightning protections techniques. Understanding Lightning and Lightning Protection is a unique self-teaching tool that provides an in-depth understanding of lightning protection.

Understanding Lightning and Lightning Protection helps the reader to understand the propagation of waves within complex intelligent structures within buildings, and the operation of systems designed to protect these structures. It also comments on proper human behavior during a lightning thunderstorm.

* Shows the fundamental processes of the lightning phenomenon, and helps the reader to understand the measures of protection against lightning damage.
* Offers a new theory and calculation method to estimate the efficiency of lightning air termination systems, which helps to evaluate the residual risk of the lightning protection system.
* Examines the propagation of waves and the associated protection of intelligent systems against lightning electromagnetic impulses.

This teaching tool is designed for senior undergraduate and postgraduate students in electrical engineering, construction, physics and meteorology. It will also provide a valuable resource for practitioners within electric power distribution, electronics, informatics & construction safety.

Hi kebian:

I look at my copy and found no spaces missing, just one blank page at the end of each chapter.

I read the preface and found this paragraph:

"This book is attached to a computer program, and it gives textual commentaries to each picture displayed on the screen. The computer program can be used without this book, because the same commentary can be also displayed and read on the
screen. It depends on the decision of the user, whether the printed or the displayed text will be preferred. The book cannot be properly used without the computer program."

I agree with your comment that not being able to see the photographs affects one's appreciation and understanding somewhat.

Looking for safety-related books some time ago, I found and downloaded the file using eMule, no computer program attached. Sorry!

If anybody has and can share the missing computer program, please do so.

Regards
