Abstract

This project aimed to model the three-dimensional field around a lightning rod prior
to a lightning strike. The project is largely theoretical and discusses the various
processes that have to be included to accurately model the voltage distribution and the
charge density around the tip of the rod.
A program has been written in C++ to model the potential distribution around a
lightning rod in three-dimensions. This program provides a framework for the
solution of the three-dimensional problem.
