Abstract:

In this paper, research into potential distributions acquired during the tribo-electrification of fabrics is presented. It was shown that fabrics with non-uniform field distributions, including those made of natural fibres, can generate strong alternating fields in dynamic conditions, exceeding a level of 104 V/m. The conclusion made was that a comparison of the strength of electric fields occurring in the surroundings of fabrics made of natural fibres as well as those produced from any other sources may help in the rational assessment of the harmful effect of static and slow-alternating electric fields on the human body.
