51. Measured CO Concentrations at NIST IAQ Test House from Operation of Portable Electric Generators in Attached Garage ‹ Interim Report
Series: OTHER
Published: 7/8/2011
Authors: Steven J Emmerich, Liangzhu Wang
Abstract: The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is concerned about the hazard of acute residential CO exposures from portable gasoline powered generators that can result in death or serious and/or lasting adverse health effects in exposed individu ...

52. Modeling the Effects of Outdoor Use of Portable Gasoline Powered Generator Exhaust on Indoor Carbon Monoxide Exposure
Published: 6/10/2011
Authors: Steven J Emmerich, Leon Wang
Abstract: The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has reported that up to half of non-fatal CO poisoning incidents during the hurricane seasons in 2004 and 2005 involved generators operated outdoors but within seven feet of the home. We condu ...

53. Ultrafine Particles: 3 Years of Measurements in the NIST Test House
Published: 6/5/2011
Authors: Lance L. Wallace, Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Emmerich, Dong H. Rim, Chi Phuong Hoang, Cynthia H. Reed, Wang Fang, M E. Greene, Jung I. Choi
Abstract: NIST has supported research characterizing ultrafine particle sources and dynamics for more than a decade. Over 90 % of ultrafine particles (UFP) produced by stovetop cooking on both gas and electric stoves were <10 nm in diameter. Emission rates o ...

54. Simultaneous Solutions of Coupled Thermal Airflow Problem for Natural Ventilation in Buildings
Published: 5/11/2011
Authors: Steven J Emmerich, William S Dols, Liangzhu (Leon) Wang
Abstract: Natural and hybrid ventilation are sustainable building ventilation strategies, where airflow is driven naturally by thermal buoyancy and/or wind forces other than pure mechanical means. The simulation and design of these systems thus need to conside ...

55. ASHRAE Standard 62.2: What is it, what‰s new, and who‰s using it
Published: 3/25/2011
Author: Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: Readers of the November 2010 IAQ Applications column by Bud Offermann learned about a large, residential IAQ study that highlighted the importance of mechanical ventilation in U.S. homes. ASHRAE Standard 62.2-2010 Ventilation and Acceptable Indoor Ai ...

56. In situ Experimental Study of Carbon Monoxide Generation by Gasoline-powered Electricity Generator in an Enclosed Space
Published: 12/1/2010
Authors: Liangzhu Wang, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: About 98 % of generator-related carbon monoxide (CO) fatalities in recent years were caused by running operating gasoline-powered generators in enclosed spaces. With an increasing market demand for portable, gasoline-powered electric generators, a be ...

57. Indoor Air Quality in Sustainable, Energy Efficient Buildings
Published: 8/15/2010
Authors: Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: Building designers, contractors, owners and managers have long been challenged with providing quality indoor environments at a reasonable energy cost. Current efforts to improve building energy efficiency, including goals of netzero energy use, are ...

58. Modeled Infiltration Rate Distributions for U.S. Housing
Published: 7/18/2010
Authors: Andrew Keith Persily, Amy Musser, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: A set of 209 dwellings that represent 80 % of U.S. housing stock was used to generate frequenc distributions of residential ventilation rates. The set of homes is based on an anal sis of the 1997 U.S. Department of Energ s Residential Energ Consum ...

59. Modeling the Effects of Outdoor Gasoline Powered Generator Use on Indoor Carbon Monoxide Exposures Phase II
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1666
Published: 7/8/2010
Authors: Wang Liangzhu, Steven J Emmerich, Ryan Powell
Abstract: The U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) conducted a study for CDC to examine the impact of distance of gasoline-powered portable electric generators on indoor CO exposure. The study was based on computer simulations of CO trans ...

60. Effect of Air Infiltration and Ventilation
Published: 11/17/2009
Authors: Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: This chapter discusses the role of air infiltration and ventilation in building moisture transport. While water vapor diffusion can be a very important moisture transport mechanism, as discussed in other chapters, bulk air movement via infiltration a ...
