Title

Electrostatic Charging Caused by Standing up from a Chair and by Garment Removal

Abstract

The generation of electrostatic charge is considered for the cases of standing up from a chair and for taking off a sweater. The charge voltages have been recorded at 27°C with relative humidity (RH) of 8%, 25% and 45% and at 38°C with 8% RH. Different footwear and flooring systems have been used to cover both ESD and non-ESD mitigating footwear and flooring combinations. The voltages caused by the activity (event voltage) and the decay times are discussed.
