In this paper, the finite element method is applied for analyzing 4 types of lightning rods in order to select the optimal lightning rod configuration. First, software is used to calculate the 2D protective coverage of different lighting rods, and 4 kinds of typical lightning rods are simulated in different conditions. The analyzed results are then applied for the selection of the optimal lighting rod and the frame of the lighting rod. The analyzed results would be useful for electricaldoi:10.3901/jme.2009.06.262 fatcat:ieqw7e32znahnb6etwcv7vh7cy
