21. Indoor Air Quality in High-Performing Building Case Studies:A Wealth of Intent, A Dearth of Data
Published: 9/19/2013
Authors: Kevin Yale Teichman, Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: In this paper, we review how indoor air quality has been addressed in case studies of high-performing buildings, specifically the case studies described in ASHRAE‰s ,High Performing BuildingsŠ magazine. We find that nearly all reported case studies ...

23. Standard formaldehyde source for chamber testing of material emissions: model development, experimental evaluation and impacts of environmental factors
Published: 8/14/2013
Authors: Wenjuan Wei, Cynthia H. Reed, Andrew Keith Persily, Yinping Zhang
Abstract: Formaldehyde, which is recognized as a harmful indoor air pollutant for human health, is emitted from urea-formaldehyde resin in wood products. Chamber tests are used to evaluate formaldehyde emission rates from these products. However, there is no a ...

24. Residential Carbon Monoxide Exposure due to Indoor Generator Operation: Effects of Source Location and Emission Rate
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1782
Published: 6/25/2013
Authors: Andrew Keith Persily, Yanling Wang, Brian J Polidoro, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and others are concerned about the hazard of acute residential carbon monoxide (CO) exposures from portable gasoline powered generators that can result in death or serious and/or lasting adverse ...

25. Consideration of Envelope Airtightness in Modelling Commercial Building Energy Consumption
Published: 6/24/2013
Authors: Lisa C Ng, Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Emmerich
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 will occur through building envelope leakage. Although the energy impacts o ...

26. Analysis of the NIST Commercial and Institutional Building Envelope Leakage Database
Published: 5/22/2013
Authors: Steven J Emmerich, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: In 1998, NIST published a review of commercial and institutional building airtightness data that found significant levels of air leakage and debunked the ,mythŠ of the airtight commercial building (Persily 1998). Since then, NIST has expanded and mai ...
