51. Impacts of Adaptive Thermal Comfort on climatic Suitability of Natural Ventilation in Office Buildings
Published: 8/29/2011
Authors: Steven J Emmerich, Brian J Polidoro, James W Axley
Abstract: In earlier work (Axley and Emmerich 2002), NIST developed a climate suitability analysis technique to evaluate the potential of a given location for direct ventilative cooling and complimentary nighttime ventilative cooling. The direct ventilative co ...

52. Indoor Air Quality in Energy Efficient Buildings
Published: 8/29/2011
Authors: Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: Building energy efficiency has been an important goal for decades. Since the energy crisis of the 1970s, much has been learned about how to improve energy efficiency in buildings. More recently, given increases in energy costs and concerns about the ...

53. 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 ...

54. 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 ...

55. 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 ...

56. 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 ...

57. 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 ...

58. 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 ...

59. 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 ...

60. 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 ...
