... relationship to predict whether a fastener has a large enough countersink and diameter to dissipate lightning strike currents without arc plasma blowby. Although Brick's paper was directed more toward a fuel environment, the method can also be used to minimize damage to the composite from a lightning strike...

..., most repair relates to two types of damage: environmental factors (such as hail, lightning and bird strikes, and debris kicked up on takeoff or landing) and hangar rash (mishandling of aircraft or components on the ground). Puncture-type damage and microcracking of composites are common; damage of face...

...) of polyurethane coatings. Twenty years later, the coating system on the Robinson Township water tower still is corrosion free and in excellent condition, except for a small damaged area due to a lightning strike. The MATR is just as satisfied with the coatings today (2014) as it was back in 1994...

... damaging than continuous exposure to the same conditions. For test results to have value in making predictions about the product, loading modes and environmental conditions should mimic, as far as possible, those expected in real life. Because lifelike tests tend to be more costly and time-consuming, their...

Insulators with protective glazes have been developed for coastal and industrial areas that experience heavy salt fog or severe air pollution...
