Lightning exposure of structures and interception efficiency of air terminals.

A review of lightning parameters derived from field measurements of real and triggered lightning and experimental data published in the scientific literature is presented to define the parameters needed for the simulation of lightning phenomenon. In particular the relationship between the negative charge in the downward leader channel and the lightning current amplitude of the first stroke is derived.
