Direct Vs. Indirect Lightning Strike Testing
Direct lightning strike testing is a crucial part of aircraft design and qualification. Manufacturers must ensure that not only the aircraft frame but also its electronics, equipment, and critical components, such as fuel tanks, can withstand the effects of a lightning strike. In order to avoid catastrophic failures, it is imperative that they all continue to perform as expected.
Element can provide you with critically important data on your product or part's performance in response to typical or extreme environmental stresses and conditions.
