Abstract : The patent concerns a method and apparatus for measuring the electrostatic charge generating capacity of various materials and simulating the contact effects that result in static charge build-up on an individual. A Van de Graaff type generator is employed having a plurality of rollers. Charge is accumulated in the vicinity of at least one roller and measured at another. Two rollers and a single material belt to be tested are employed or more than two rollers and a plurality of belts may be used.
