Video of Webinar Titled When and How to Consider Terrain in Lightning Protection?

On March 22, 2023, a webinar with Dr. Sc. (Eng.), Prof. Eduard M. Bazelyan, took place.

Russia is mostly a plain country. However, there are Caucasus mountains, Crimea, Karelia, and the Urals as well as mountain groups in Siberian and the Far East. We have to build structures in gorges, in hills, or even at high mountain tops. All of this is not reflected in lightning protection regulatory documents. One may think, why? However, it is simple: gorge walls cover the facility from the lightning, and the deeper the gorge, the more reliable it is, while the construction at a mountain top is too close to thunderclouds. This does not need to be proved, although yields qualitative estimates only.

Our permanent speaker, Prof. of ENIN E. M. Bazelyan, will tell us how to consider the specifics of the terrain in a real-life lightning protection project. The webinar material is based on actual data that may be used to substantiate the choice of technical solutions and calculate their characteristics. As usual, the author provides recommendations on the use of existing regulatory documents.
