11. Simulation Study of Carbon Monoxide Exposure from Portable Generators in U.S. Residences
Published: 8/6/2014
Authors: Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Emmerich, Yanling Wang, Brian J Polidoro
Abstract: A simulation study was conducted to evaluate indoor CO exposures as a function of portable generator location and CO emission rate in order to support the development of potential CO emission limits for generators. These simulations employed the mult ...

12. Development and Application of an Updated Whole-Building Coupled Thermal, Airflow, and Contaminant Transport Simulation Program (TRNSYS/CONTAM)
Published: 7/23/2014
Authors: William S Dols, Wang Liangzhu, Steven J Emmerich, Brian J Polidoro
Abstract: The TRNSYS energy analysis tool has been capable of simulating whole building coupled heat transfer and building airflow for several years. The current implementation is based on two TRNSYS modules Type 56 and Type 97. Type 97 is based on a subset of ...

13. An improved method of modeling infiltration in commercial building energy models
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1829
Published: 4/28/2014
Authors: Lisa C Ng, Steven J Emmerich, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: As various strategies for improving building envelope and HVAC equipment efficiencies are increasingly used to reduce building energy use, a greater percentage of energy loss can occur through building envelope leakage. Although the energy impacts of ...

14. Evaluating Building Ventilation Strategies Using Newly-Developed TRNSYS/CONTAM Simulation Capabilities
Published: 4/3/2014
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 ...

15. Analysis of U.S Commercial Building Envelope Air Leakage Database to Support Sustainable Building Design
Published: 3/26/2014
Authors: Steven J Emmerich, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: In 1998, NIST published a review of commercial and institutional building airtightness data that found significant levels of air leakage and debunked the myth of the airtight commercial building (Persily 1998). Since then, NIST has expanded and maint ...

16. Consideration of Envelope Airtightness in Modelling Commercial Building Energy Consumption
Published: 3/26/2014
Authors: Lisa C Ng, Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: As strategies for improving building envelope and HVAC equipment efficiencies are increasingly required to reduce building energy use, a greater percentage of energy loss will occur through building envelope leakage. Although the energy impacts of un ...

17. A Graphical Approach to Evaluating High-Performing Buildings:Indoor Air Quality, Energy, Water, and Waste
Published: 2/20/2014
Authors: Kevin Yale Teichman, Steven J Emmerich, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: In this paper, we describe and demonstrate a graphical approach to illustrating the performance of high-performing buildings. Our approach enables building designers, owners, operators, and occupants to evaluate the performance of a building as desig ...

18. IAQ 2013 Tools Topic Overview
Published: 2/20/2014
Authors: Steven J Emmerich, Larry Schoen
Abstract: The complex relationships between indoor and outdoor environmental conditions, coupled with the impacts of climate change, make it more important than ever before that buildings be comfortable and healthy for the occupants yet also energy efficient. ...

19. Environmental Health in Low Energy Buildings Topic Overview
Published: 2/11/2014
Authors: Steven J Emmerich, Hal Levin
Abstract: Besides providing thermal comfort and acceptable indoor environmental quality (IEQ), the designers of buildings and other enclosed spaces are increasingly challenged to provide a healthy environment in an energy efficient manner. Increasing pressure ...

20. The IAQ and Energy Impacts of Reducing Formaldehyde Emissions in Commercial Building
Published: 2/11/2014
Authors: Lisa C Ng, Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Emmerich, Kevin Yale Teichman
Abstract: Heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems in buildings are designed to provide thermally comfortable conditions and to maintain acceptable indoor air quality (IAQ). At the same time, the operating costs of HVAC systems are often a la ...
