Number of Thunderstorm Days / Year Lightning Flash Density (Flashes to Ground /km2/year) Weighting Factor A ( Use of Structure ) Weighting Factor B ( Type of Construction ) Weighting Factor C ( Content of Consequential Effects ) Weighting Factor D ( Degree of Isolation ) Weighting Factor E ( Type of Country ) ( Refer Fig. 1 of IS 2309 ) = (Refer Clause 8.1.2 of IS 2309) = ( Refer Table 1A of IS 2309 ) = ( Refer Table 1B of IS 2309 ) = ( Refer Table 1C of IS 2309 ) = ( Refer Table 1D of IS 2309 ) = ( Refer Table 1E of IS 2309 ) = = (L x W) + 2 (L x H) + 2(W x H) + 3.14 H2 = = 27 No. of Days / Year 5 Nos./km2/year 1 0.2 1 0.4 0.3 450.25 Meter2 0.002251 Times per year 0.024000 0.000054 5.4030E-05

ii)

Calculations :Collection Area ( Refer Clause 8.1.2 of IS 2309 ) Probable Number of Strikes to Building / Structure per Year ( Refer Clause 8.1.2 of IS 2309 ) Overall Multiplying Factor Overall Risk Factor Calculated

= Ac x Ng x 10-6 times/year

Rf-C

## = AxBxCxDxE = Overall Multiplying Factor = = xP ie

iii)

Maximum Acceptable Overall Risk Factor:Maximum Acceptable Overall Risk Factor Rf-A ( Refer Clauses 8.1.3 & 8.1.6 of IS 2309 ) =
ie

0.000001
1.000E-06

iv)

Result / Conclusion :Since Overall Risk Factor Calculated Maximum Acceptable Overall Risk Factor > Hence, Lightning Protection is Required.

B) CHECK FOR ADEQUACY OF NUMBER OF DOWN CONDUCTORS Calculations (As per Clause 12.2.3 of IS-2309):Ab = ( L x W ) Base Area of Structure P = 2(L+W) Perimeter of Structure i) For Base Area (Ab) < 100m2
a) Number of Down Conductors Required = For Ab < 100m2

= = =

ii)

## For Base Area (Ab) > 100m2

b) Based on Base Area of Structure:Number of Down Conductors Required c) Based on Parimeter of Structure:Number of Down Conductors Required = 1+(Ab-100)/300 = 1 Nos

= P/30 = 2 Nos. Note:- The Number of Down Conductor should be at least the smaller between b) & c) (as per clause 12.2.3b of IS-2309) = Hence, Required Number of Down Conductors 1 Nos.
