    Electronic systems in composite structures could be vulnerable to the (dominant magnetic) field caused by a lightning strike, because only thin layers of metal can be used on composite structures. Thin layers result in a very low shielding effectiveness against magnetic fields. Many experiments using large 10/350μs lightning current impulses have been carried out nearby several structures to investigate the effect of field coupling.
