Composite material use for commercial aircraft structures is increasing. Aircraft manufacturers must mitigate the risks associated with lightning strikes on composite aircraft. Reliable inline dissipation methods are crucial to preventing ignition in the fuel tanks.
This white paper explores:
- A brief history of the use of composites in aircraft
- The evolution of the use of composites for aircraft structures and accompanying advances in manufacturing
- Lightning strike protection techniques and equipment
While metallic structures dissipate and discharge lightning strikes, composite aircraft do not conduct electricity as readily.
