51. Evolution of Ultrafine Particle Size Distributions Following Indoor Episodic Releases: Relative Importance of Coagulation, Deposition and Ventilation
Published: 11/15/2011
Authors: Dong H. Rim, Lance L. Wallace, Andrew Keith Persily, Jung I. Choi
Abstract: Indoor ultrafine particles (UFP, < 100 nm) undergo aerosol processes such as coagulation and deposition, which alter UFP size distribution and accordingly the level of exposure to UFP of different sizes. This study investigates the decay of indoor UF ...

52. U.S. Commercial Building Airtightness Requirements and Measurements
Published: 10/12/2011
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 ,mythŠ of the airtight commercial building. Since that time, the U.S. National Institute of S ...

53. Model Development and Validation for Particle Release Experiments in a Two-story Office Building
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1703
Published: 10/5/2011
Authors: William S Dols, Andrew Keith Persily, Jayne B Morrow

54. Nucleation and Growth of Freshly-Formed Particles from Limonene Ozonolysis
Published: 8/30/2011
Authors: Chi Phuong Hoang, Dong H. Rim, Lance L. Wallace, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: In building environments, oxidation reactions involving ozone and terpenoids lead to nano-sized particle formation [Jang et al. 1999]. Low volatility products of these reactions are important and add to particle mass concentrations in air through nuc ...

55. Reduction of Exposure to Ultrafine Particles by Kitchen Exhaust Fans of Varying Flow Rates
Published: 8/30/2011
Authors: Dong H. Rim, Andrew Keith Persily, Lance L. Wallace
Abstract: This study has investigated the effect of a kitchen exhaust hood on the reduction of exposure to ultrafine particles (UFP) from a gas stove. Size-resolved UFP ranging from 2 nm to 100 nm were monitored in a manufactured test house (volume of 340 m3), ...

56. Ventilation Measurements in IAQ Studies: Problems and Opportunities
Published: 8/30/2011
Authors: Andrew Keith Persily, Hal Levin
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 the im ...

57. 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 ...

58. Building Triage in Response to Wide-Area Bio-Releases: Concepts and Building Classification System
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1686
Published: 7/7/2011
Author: Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: In order to support effective responses to a wide-area release of a biological agent in an urban area, a ,building triageŠ approach is envisioned that will provide an estimate of the contamination levels of specific buildings that are likely to have ...

59. Airflow and Indoor Air Quality Analyses Capabilities of Energy Simulation Software
Published: 6/5/2011
Authors: Lisa Ng, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: A wide range of tools are used to design and analyze the energy implications of different ventilation and space conditioning strategies to reduce building energy use. However, questions exist regarding how and whether these tools consider airflow and ...

60. Modelling Dynamic Aerosol Processes for Indoor Ultrafine Particles
Published: 6/5/2011
Authors: Dong H. Rim, Lance L. Wallace, Andrew Keith Persily, Jung I. Choi
Abstract: This study has investigated aerosol transformation processes for four common sources of indoor ultrafine particles (UFP): gas stove, electric stove, candle, and hair dryer. For each of the four UFP sources, the temporal change in particle size dist ...
