21. Indoor Air Quality in High-Performing Building Case Studies:A Wealth of Intent, A Dearth of Data
Published: 9/19/2013
Authors: Kevin Yale Teichman, Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: In this paper, we review how indoor air quality has been addressed in case studies of high-performing buildings, specifically the case studies described in ASHRAE‰s ,High Performing BuildingsŠ magazine. We find that nearly all reported case studies ...

22. Residential Carbon Monoxide Exposure due to Indoor Generator Operation: Effects of Source Location and Emission Rate
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1782
Published: 6/25/2013
Authors: Andrew Keith Persily, Yanling Wang, Brian J Polidoro, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and others are concerned about the hazard of acute residential carbon monoxide (CO) exposures from portable gasoline powered generators that can result in death or serious and/or lasting adverse ...

23. Consideration of Envelope Airtightness in Modelling Commercial Building Energy Consumption
Published: 6/24/2013
Authors: Lisa C Ng, Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Emmerich
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 will occur through building envelope leakage. Although the energy impacts o ...

24. Analysis of the NIST Commercial and Institutional Building Envelope Leakage Database
Published: 5/22/2013
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 ,mythŠ of the airtight commercial building (Persily 1998). Since then, NIST has expanded and mai ...

26. Using multi-zone modeling of particle transport to support building design
Published: 2/21/2013
Authors: Dong H. Rim, Andrew Keith Persily, Lance L. Wallace, William S Dols, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: As building design and operation changes to meet the goals of sustainability, it is critical to address indoor air quality issues such that indoor environmental conditions are maintained. Among the indoor air contaminants of concern in this context a ...

27. Multizone Airflow Models for Calculating Infiltration Rates in Commercial Reference Buildings
Published: 2/6/2013
Authors: Lisa C Ng, Amy Musser, Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: Sixteen commercial reference buildings were created in the multizone airflow and contaminant transport program CONTAM in order to support physically based airflow calculations, as well as indoor air quality analyses, that are not possible using the e ...
