Sometimes question comes how to measure ESD . It can be measured through Voltmeter and it can measure electrostatic voltage upto 30,000V. This meter will also identify postive and negative charges . There can be different ways to avoid or reduce this ESD.

1. Keeping synthetic material 4inch away from electronic devices.

2.Using static floor mats where necessary

3.Treat carpets and floors with compounds that drop down static charges .

And many more .

ESD floor mat can prevent electronic devices from being damaged by any electrostatic charge.

There are different sources of static electricity :

1. Waxed floors , vinyle tile on surfaces and so on .

2. Finished wood chairs, vinyle  and fibre glass.

3.Synthetic clothes, nylon etc

4.Common plastic bags, trays and so on

If we walk on carpeted floor in a heated room the shock we experience when we touch door knob is static electricity .

As additive manufacturing (including 3D printing) becomes increasingly popular among businesses as a quick and easy solution to creating and evaluating prototypes and end-use products, the debate about whether to outsource production or to purchase equipment for in-house use is at the forefront of industry discussions.
With increasing terrorist threats overseas, organizations are thinking about how best to defend themselves here and abroad. Engineering can play a role, especially when it comes to putting a barrier between yourself and the bad guys.
Time to market is everything, but at the same time, you cant sacrifice quality for speed. Thats where additive manufacturing comes into play.
In the last few years, use of CFD in building design has increased manifolds. Computational fluid dynamics is effective in analyzing the flow and thermal properties of air within spaces. It can be used in buildings to find the best measures for comfortable temperature at low energy use.
Feature-advantage-benefit could help engineers in how we approach design problems, how we sell our ideas to management, and how we market ourselves when it comes to jobs.
