Volcanoes are a natural source of micro- and nanoparticles, which become electrically charged near the vent, mainly by fractoemission, triboelectrification, and further self-charging which lead to a wide array of particle sizes (Aplin et al.
Investigation of a test methodology for triboelectrification. Electrical Overstress/Electrostatic Discharge Symposium Proceedings, 344-5.
The role of both interfacial and adhesion has significant role where friction, wear, triboelectrification, surface contamination control in microelectronics and particle adhesion.
The method of using continuous variations of triboelectrification and friction coefficient to monitor the dynamic tribological properties between the metal films has been applied successfully by the authors [9-12].
This process, known as triboelectrification or tribocharging, results in the generation of static charges on the surface of pressure sensitive adhesive tape as it unwinds from the roll and as it contacts and separates from surfaces such as idler roils, nip roils and printing or coating rolls.
A previous experimental work (Inculet et al., 1997) demonstrated that the elbows in a pipeline are the major source of triboelectrification of particles in pneumatic conveying systems and these are also important sites of pipe abrasion.
This contact and separation process, or friction, is known as "triboelectrification," or "tribocharging." It is the same phenomenon that occurs when you walk across the carpet, touch a light switch, and get a shock.
GTI's research noted "When PE pipe is charged by dust or particulate flowing in the gas (triboelectrification), charge is generated initially in the interior of the of the pipe.
