Why Are Lightning Strikes NOT Dangerous for Planes
Sep 12, 2023 -

Carbon composites have revolutionized the aerospace industry with their remarkable properties. One of the challenges faced, however, is their limited conductivity compared to metals. This led to a critical question: How to safeguard aircraft from lightning strikes? The solution was ingenious. Engineers integrated a mesh made of conductive fibers within the layers of carbon composites. Though imperceptible to the naked eye, this mesh plays a pivotal role. When lightning strikes, instead of the electrical energy coursing through the material and potentially causing harm, it is safely directed away by this embedded mesh. This innovative approach ensures the structural integrity of the aircraft remains intact.
