Abstract

A sample of electroconductive fabric subjected to a lightning-like current impulse is analyzed in this contribution. A multiphysics simulation is used to calculate the temperature distribution produced by a lightning-like current flowing through the material sample. A decoupled, electromagnetic (EM) and thermal, simulation was conducted for the analysis and is explained in the paper. The scaling factor calculation to represent the energy presented during current impulse tests is also detailed. Numerical results present patterns that agree with experimental tests reported in the literature and represent an additional tool for the phenomena insight.
