91. Standards Development for Gas Phase Air Cleaning Equipment in Buildings
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7525
Published: 11/3/2008
Authors: Andrew Keith Persily, Cynthia H. Reed, Stephanie S Watson, Nicos Martys, Edward Joseph Garboczi, Heather Davis
Abstract: Concerns about building security have resulted in increasing interest in gas phase air cleaning (GPAC) and the need for standard methods to determine the effectiveness of these systems. Similarly, the ability to predict their installed performance, ...

92. Analysis of Ventilation Data from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Building Assessment Survey and Evaluation (BASE) Study
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7145-Revised
Published: 11/1/2008
Authors: Andrew Keith Persily, J Gorfain
Abstract: [Replaces Version (NISTIR 7145) Published in December 2004] The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Building Assessment Survey and Evaluation (BASE) study included a range of measurements in 100 randomly selected U.S. office buildings for the ...

93. Contribution of Gas and Electric Stoves to Residential Ultrafine Particle Concentrations between 2 nm and 64 nm: Size Distributions and Emission and Coagulation Rates
Published: 10/29/2008
Authors: Lance L. Wallace, Wang Fang, Cynthia H. Reed, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: Three indoor sources of ultrafine particles (a gas stove, an electric stove, and an electric toaster oven) have been studied in an instrumented test house on the campus of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Previous studies h ...

94. Reanalysis of BASE Ventilation Data
Series: Letter Circular
Published: 10/10/2008
Author: Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: In 2004, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) published an analysis of the ventilation data collected as part of the U.S. EPA Building Assessment Survey and Evaluation (BASE) study [1]. That analysis provided a unique dataset of ...

95. Improving the Reliability of VOC Emissions Testing of Building Products
Published: 10/1/2008
Authors: Cynthia H. Reed, Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Nabinger

96. Building Air Change Rate Estimates for CBR Analysis
Series: OTHER
Published: 9/15/2008
Author: Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: Building air change rates impact energy consumption for space conditioning and indoor contaminant levels in relation to general indoor air quality issues as well as occupant exposure to airborne chemical, biological and radiological (CBR) agents. Wit ...

97. Assessing the Uncertainty Associated with Product Emission Measurements
Published: 8/17/2008
Authors: Cynthia H. Reed, Steven J Nabinger, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emitted by building materials and products have been shown to significantly impact human health and comfort. As a result, the market for low emitting building materials and products is growing rapidly. However, exist ...

98. Development of a Design Guide to Improve Building IAQ
Published: 8/17/2008
Authors: Andrew Keith Persily, Martha Hewett, Jude Anders, Lynn Bellenger, Ronald Burton, John Girman, Eli HowardI, Eric Werling
Abstract: Building owners and developers, and the designers and contractors they employ, are faced with a variety of requirements related to building function, regulations, and environmental impacts. These professionals often address indoor air quality through ...

99. Ventilation Measurements in Selected IAQ Studies
Report Number: 861499
Published: 8/17/2008
Author: Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: Building and space ventilation rates are primary determinants of indoor pollutant levels and occupant exposures, and the impacts of ventilation on health and comfort have long been recognized in ventilation standards and regulations.  Despite th ...
