101. Transient Analysis of Volatile Organic Compound Concentrations for Estimating Emission Rates
Published: 12/1/2003
Authors: Andrew Keith Persily, Cynthia H. Reed, Steven J Nabinger
Abstract: While VOC emissions rates have been obtained for building materials and furnishings in chambers, field measurements are more difficult due to the existence of multiple and time-varying sources, variations in ventilation rates, impacts of adsorption a ...

102. Ventilation Characterization of a New Manufactured House
Published: 12/1/2003
Authors: Andrew Keith Persily, J Crum, Steven J Nabinger, M Lubliner
Abstract: A new, double-wide manufactured home has been installed on the NIST campus for ventilation, energy and indoor air quality studies. The primary purposes of the facility are to study the mechanical ventilation requirements for manufactured homes in the ...

103. Simulations of Indoor Air Quality and Ventilation Impacts of Demand Controlled Ventilation in Commercial and Institutional Buildings.
Published: 10/12/2003
Authors: Andrew Keith Persily, A Musser, Steven J Emmerich, Michael A Taylor
Abstract: Carbon-dioxide (CO2) based demand controlled ventilation (DCV) offers the potential for more energy efficient building ventilation compared with constant ventilation rates based on design occupancy levels. A number of questions related to CO2-based D ...

104. Impact of Natural Ventilation Strategies and Design Issues for California Applications, Including Input to ASHRAE Standard 62 and California Title 24-Report on Task 4.4.3a and 4.4.3b of CEC-EEB RMT Project
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7062
Published: 10/1/2003
Authors: Steven J Emmerich, Andrew Keith Persily, William S Dols, James W Axley
Abstract: Natural ventilation has the potential to reduce the energy required for cooling and ventilating commercial buildings while still providing acceptable thermal comfort and indoor air quality. While a recent surge of interest in Europe has advanced natu ...

105. Recommendations for Application of CO^d2^-Based Demand Controlled Ventilation Including Proposed Guidance for ASHRAE Standard 62 and California's Title 24
Published: 9/29/2003
Authors: Andrew Keith Persily, Jim Braun, Steven J Emmerich, Kevin Mercer, Tom Lawerence
Abstract: Carbon dioxide (CO2) based demand controlled ventilation (DCV) has been proposed and implemented for many years as a strategy for increasing energy efficiency by providing outdoor air ventilation rates based on actual occupancy rather than design occ ...

106. A Priority Agenda for Energy-Related Indoor Environmental Quality Research
Published: 7/1/2002
Authors: W J Fisk, G Brager, M Brook, H Burge, J Cole, J Cummings, H Levin, V Loftness, T Logee, M J Mendell, Andrew Keith Persily, S Taylor, J Zhang
Abstract: A multidisciplinary team of IEQ and energy researchers is working together to define a program of priority energy-related IEQ research. This paper describes the methods employed, ten high priority broad research and development (R&D) goals, and 34 h ...

107. Modeling Moisture in Residential Buildings with a Multizone IAQ Program
Published: 7/1/2002
Authors: Steven J Emmerich, Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Nabinger
Abstract: Multizone airflow and contaminant transport modeling is a valuable tool for researchers and others studying indoor air quality (IAQ) problems in buildings. Although water vapor is not typically thought of as an indoor contaminant, multizone IAQ model ...

108. Multizone Modeling Approaches to Contaminant-Based Design
Published: 6/1/2002
Authors: A L Musser, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: Indoor air quality is currently addressed in the design process primarily through prescriptive building codes based on specified flow rates. However, a contaminant-based design approach opens the door to design innovation, offering opportunities for ...

109. The Revision of Standard 62: What a Difference a Decade Makes
Published: 6/1/2002
Author: Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: The American Society of heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) has been revising Standard 62,Ventilation for Acceptable Indoor Air Quality since 1991. The two primary motivations for this revision have been 1) to convert ...

110. 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 ...
