：According to simulation lightning experiments and eddy current analysis results, a three-dimensional finite element model of composite laminated plates with shield is established. By applying electric-thermal boundary and the coupling relationship between them, the lightning strike damage results under the protection of shield are realistically simulated with the commercial finite element analysis software, ABAQUS. Considering the coupling effect of heat, electricity, and force during lightning strike, the load distribution field of copper mesh and carbon fiber panel with lightning current inducted is analyzed. Comparing the thermal stress distribution of the specimen surface under various current loads, it is shown that the stress of carbon fiber panel is significantly lower than the one of the copper screen when the specimen structure suffers heavy current, since the copper network plays a role of endergonic protection. Simulation data are consistent with the test results, thus the method can be used for other similar research.
