1. 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 ...

2. A Method to Assess the Suitability of a Climate for Natural Ventilation of Commercial Buildings
Published: 7/1/2002
Authors: Steven J Emmerich, William S Dols, James W Axley
Abstract: Natural ventilation has the potential to reduce first costs and operating costs for some commercial buildings while maintaining ventilation rates consistent with acceptable indoor air quality. While a recent surge of interest in Europe has advanced ...

3. 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 ...

4. Air and Pollutant Transport From Attached Garages to Residential Living Spaces
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7072
Published: 12/1/2003
Authors: Steven J Emmerich, Cynthia H. Reed
Abstract: NIST is conducting a study on the indoor air quality (IAQ) impacts and engineering solutions related to the transport of pollutants from attached garages to residential living spaces. Natural or fan-induced pressure differences across air leakage pa ...

5. Airflow and Aerosol Transport Modeling in Hart Senate Office Building
Published: 5/23/2002
Authors: Steven J Emmerich, Cynthia H. Reed, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: A modeling study of airflow and contaminant transport in the Hart Senate Office Building (HSOB) was performed to obtain insight into the transport of anthrax spores within the building after a short-term release in October 2001. This analysis employe ...

6. Airflow and Indoor Air Quality Models of DOE Reference Commercial Buildings
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1734
Published: 2/24/2012
Authors: Lisa C Ng, Amy Musser, Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: Sixteen reference commercial buildings were defined by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and created as EnergyPlus input files. They were developed for use in assessing new technologies and supporting the development of energy codes. Infiltration ...

7. Airtightness Evaluation of Shelter-in-Place Spaces for Protection Against Airborne Chembio Releases
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7546
Published: 10/15/2009
Authors: Andrew Keith Persily, Heather Davis, Steven J Emmerich, William S Dols
Abstract: Due to concerns about potential airborne chemical and biological releases in or near buildings, building owners and managers and other decision makers are faced with a number of options for increasing their building s level of protection against su ...

8. Airtightness of Commercial Buildings in the United States
Published: 9/21/2005
Authors: Steven J Emmerich, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: In 1998, Persily 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. This paper updates the earlier analysis for the U ...

9. An Approach to the Design of Natural and Hybrid Ventilation Systems for Cooling Buildings
Published: 7/1/2002
Authors: James W Axley, Steven J Emmerich, William S Dols, George Walton
Abstract: This paper presents an approach to the design of natural and hybrid ventilation systems that accounts for specific climatic and operational conditions and is organized to serve the building designer at each distinct phase of design predesign analys ...

10. 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 ...
