Lightning strike protection for composite structures

Militair vliegtuig

Three common problems using AFP (Automated Fiber Placement) process 

Expanded metal foil narrowing under tension - LSP - dexmet - aeromesh - copper mesh.png

1. Tape deformation and tape breaks

makes it hard to control the gap between the tapes


2. Voids in reinforced composite structure

raise concerns about material integrity

​3. Trade-off between weight and conductivity

Better conductivity = thicker copper = more weight (copper or resin)
