51. Diffusion-controlled reference material for VOC emissions testing: proof of concept
Published: 3/3/2010
Authors: Steve Cox, Zhe Liu, John Little, Cynthia H. Reed, Steven J Nabinger, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: Because of concerns about indoor air quality, there is growing awareness of the need to reduce the rate at which indoor materials and products emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs). To meet consumer demand for low emitting products, manufacturers ...

52. Effect of Air Infiltration and Ventilation
Published: 11/17/2009
Authors: Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: This chapter discusses the role of air infiltration and ventilation in building moisture transport. While water vapor diffusion can be a very important moisture transport mechanism, as discussed in other chapters, bulk air movement via infiltration a ...

53. 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 ...

54. Development and Demonstration of a Method to Evaluate Bio-Sampling Strategies using Building Simulation and Sample Planning Software
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1636
Published: 6/1/2009
Authors: William S Dols, Jayne B Morrow, Andrew Keith Persily, Brett Matzke, Landon Sego, Lisa Nuffer, Brent Pulsipher
Abstract: In an effort to validate and demonstrate response and recovery sampling approaches and technologies, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), along with several other agencies, have simulated a bio-terrorist release within a facility at Idaho ...

55. 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-R
Published: 3/10/2009
Authors: Andrew Keith Persily, J Gorfain
Abstract: 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 purpose of characterizing the existing building stock with ...

56. 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, ...

57. 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 ...

58. 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 ...

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

60. 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 ...
