Calculation, Design and BIM Modeling of Lightning Protection System (Saudi Arabia)

The installation of the lightning rod system of a complete plant is designed and calculated. An exhaustive study and the corresponding calculation programs provide a solution for the lightning protection of a large construction. The main objective is to determine the areas of the plant that require such protection and to define the number, position and parameters of the elements that achieve optimum protection.

Results are always achieved by seeking to provide solutions in the most economical way possible and responding with the least possible number of elements, without anything being left outside the protection radius.
