Short summary
A numerical method is presented which is capable to compute the electromagnetic fields created by the current of a spatially extended lightning channel. The coupling of these fields into simple models of aircraft fuselages is investigated, where the electric material parameters of the fuselages correspond to those of realistic layered carbon fiber composite.
