This document shall cover traditional lightning protection
system installation requirements for the following:This document shall not cover lightning protection system
installation requirements for early streamer emission systems
or charge dissipation systems. The purpose of this standard is to provide for
the practical safeguarding of persons and property from hazards
arising from exposure to lightning.
A lightning rod (AUS) or lightning conductor (UK) is a metal rod or conductor mounted on top of a building and electrically connected to the ground through a wire, to protect the building in the event of lightning. If lightning strikes the building it will preferentially strike the rod, and be conducted harmlessly to ground through the wire, instead of passing through the building, where it could start a fire or cause electrocution. A lightning rod is a single component in a lightning protection system. ...

Lightning protection systems have changed drastically since Benjamin Franklin first invented lighting rods in
1752. Today's systems must protect modern appliances, electrical systems and building constructions - they
have to keep up with tile changing requirements of modern technology.
Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (UL) keeps up with these changes.
Lightning phenomena. The planet earth is similar
to a huge battery continuously losing electrons to
the atmosphere. These electrons could be lost in less
than an hour unless the supply is continually replenished.
It is widely agreed among physicists and scientists
that thunderstorms occurring thousands of
times daily around the earth return electrons to
earth to maintain normal magnitude of electrons at or
near the surface of- the earth.
This research on lightning protection systems for trees was established for the purpose of
developing a better understanding of lightning protection systems specifically designed to be
fitted to trees. Coming from a background in sylviculture my initial concern was to enable
important and intrinsically valuable trees to be protected from damage resulting from lightning
strikes. However it quickly became apparent that the protection of nearby structures and
buildings that might be liable to collateral damage in the event of strike was of equal
A lightning protection system is a system designed to protect a structure from damage due
to lightning strikes by intercepting such strikes and safely passing their extremely high voltage
currents to "ground". Most lightning protection systems include a network of lightning rods,
metal conductors, and ground electrodes designed to provide a low resistance path to ground for

Franklin performed his initial experiments on electricity in collaboration with friends and neighbors,
including Thomas Hopkinson, a lawyer and judge; Ebenezer Kinnersley, a clergyman and teacher; and Philip
Syng Jr, a master silversmith. Franklin described the experiments and their results in five formal Letters to
Peter Collinson, a fellow of the Royal Society of London, during the years from 1747 to 1750. Collinson in
turn communicated those Letters to the Society and published them in April 1751....
ADC’s new P3M protector modules combine lightning protection and DS3 signal monitoring
capabilities in a single, compact chassis. The modules can be placed in an outside plant cabinet
or at a handoff site in a central office and provide primary protection for network equipment.
BECCAOn a sunny day in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, eight-year-old Becca Burke was struck by lightning. No one believed her—not her philandering father or her drunk, love-sick mother—not even when her watch kept losing time…

WHO THIS BOOK IS FOR
Be aware that this is not a beginner book. It is an intermediate-level book that assumes you
are familiar with linear algebra (matrices, vectors, and quaternions), you have a strong C/C++
programming background, you have at least touched base with OpenGL or OpenGL ES, and you
basically know how computer graphics work in general.
If you have this necessary knowledge, and want to make lightning-fast progress in game and
graphics programming, then you have found the right publication.

If you're reading this because you think you might be one, my advice is: close this book right
now. Believe whatever lie your mom or dad told you about your birth, and try to lead a normal

If you're a normal kid, reading this because you think it's fiction, great. Read on. I envy you for
being able to believe that none of this ever happened.
But if you recognize yourself in these pages—if you feel something stirring inside—stop reading
