[en] This work is part of a project that deals with the optimization of the quantity and the nature of conductive fibers in antistatic felts used for filtering and sieving powders. Our research concerns the electrical properties at the mesoscopic scale. It aims at determining the conduction mechanisms and the distribution of the electric potential at the scale of the distance between the conductive fibers. In this paper, current-voltage (I-V) measurement results are presented and discussed. X-ray microtomography is used to obtain the geometry of the conductive fibers inside the felts before and after these I-V tests. The studied textile material is based on polyester fibers and stainless steel conductive fibers.
