Lightning is devastating and carry very high current of about 200,000 A! This natural
phenomenon cannot be stopped and cannot be eliminated. It causes danger towards
life and structure, and causes losses of millions ringgit. Various lightning codes and
standards have been practiced worldwide. However, there is no standard lightning
code that has been established in Malaysia to enforce lightning protection system.
This project has been conducted to determine major causes of lightning damages and
to develop a program to determine risk factors of structures towards lightning. The
project will also propose the suitable lightning protection and design system which
could reduce the risk factors. Several lightning cases will be discussed and analyzed
to determine the root causes of the incidents. Australian, New Zealand, British and
IEC codes and standards will be used to discuss risk factor analysis. The outcome of
this project is to develop lightning protection program that can reduce the lightning
risk factor of structures.
