Induced Transients in a Simulated Lightning Test of the Fly-by-Wire Jaguar Aircraft,
ROYAL AIRCRAFT ESTABLISHMENT FARNBOROUGH (ENGLAND)
Simulated lightning tests were performed on the Jaguar aircraft modified for demonstrating fly-by-wire technology. A pulse generator injected currents of 100 kA maximum into the fuselage measurements were made of induced voltage and current transients in cables, currents and magnetic fields in equipment bays, currently density on the fuselage and wings, and rate of change of electrical field at two locations. Full-threat estimates were obtained by extrapolation. Some remarks are included on the consistency and accuracy of the results and their realism in relation to actual in-flight strikes. Author
