    Abstract: The effect of meteorological variables such as relative humidity, maximum temperature, and predominant wind orientation, as well as oxidant species on the variation of mechanical resistance to compression of the cylinders extracted from two electric transmission towers was investigated. The obtained results are compared with the mechanical strength... Show More

    Abstract: The results of study of the characteristics and parameters of plasma of a high-current nanosecond discharge in atmospheric pressure air between copper electrodes under conditions of strong overstress of the discharge gap are presented. Under such conditions, favorable conditions are created for igniting an atmospheric pressure diffuse discharge in ... Show More
