This project aimed to model the three-dimensional field around a lightning rod prior to a lightning strike. The project is largely theoretical and discusses the various processes that have to be included to accurately model the voltage distribution and the charge density around the tip of the rod. A program has been written in C++ to model the potential distribution around a lightning rod in three-dimensions. This program provides a framework for the solution of the three-dimensional problem.
