1. Coupling of Whole-Building Energy, Airflow and Contaminant Transport Models (EnergyPlus and CONTAM) Using Co-Simulation
Published: 2/4/2016
Authors: William S Dols, Steven J Emmerich, Brian J Polidoro
Abstract: Building modelers need simulation tools capable of simultaneously considering building energy use, airflow and indoor air quality (IAQ) to design and evaluate the ability of buildings and their systems to meet today‰s demanding energy efficiency and ...

2. Using Coupled Energy, Airflow and IAQ Software (TRNSYS/CONTAM) to Evaluate Building Ventilation Strategies
Published: 12/10/2015
Authors: William S Dols, Steven J Emmerich, Brian J Polidoro
Abstract: Building energy analysis tools are available in many forms that provide the ability to address a broad spectrum of energy-related issues in various combinations. Often these tools operate in isolation from one another, making it difficult to evaluate ...

4. Modeling Particle Resuspension for Estimating Exposure to Bacillus Spores
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1841
Published: 6/11/2015
Authors: William S Dols, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: A key challenge in assessing the risks of low level contaminations following biological threat agent releases, and subsequent decontamination, is developing an understanding of and addressing the potential for airborne resuspension of agents that ...

5. CONTAM To EnergyPlus Infiltration Features of the CONTAM Results Export Tool
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1873
Published: 3/30/2015
Authors: Brian J Polidoro, Lisa C Ng, William S Dols, Steven J Emmerich, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: As building envelope performance and HVAC equipment efficiencies continue to be improved to reduce building energy use, a greater percentage of the total energy loss of a building can occur through envelope leakage. Although the energy impacts of ...
