61. Reduction of Exposure to Ultrafine Particles by Kitchen Exhaust Hoods: The Effects of Varying Flow Rates, Particle Size, and Burner Position
Published: 6/6/2012
Authors: Dong H. Rim, Lance L. Wallace, Steven J Nabinger, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: Cooking stoves are one of the most common combustion sources of indoor ultrafine particles (UFP). UFP have been observed to be associated with adverse health effects such as respiratory and cardiovascular diseases. This study investigates the effecti ...

62. Indoor Air Quality in Sustainable, Energy Efficient Buildings
Published: 5/15/2012
Authors: Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: Building designers, contractors, owners and managers have long been challenged with providing quality indoor environments at a reasonable energy cost. Current efforts to improve building energy efficiency, including goals of sustainability and net-ze ...

63. Airflow and Indoor Air Quality Models of DOE Reference Commercial Buildings
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1734
Published: 2/24/2012
Authors: Lisa C Ng, Amy Musser, Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: Sixteen reference commercial buildings were defined by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and created as EnergyPlus input files. They were developed for use in assessing new technologies and supporting the development of energy codes. Infiltration ...

64. 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 ...

65. 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 ...

66. 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

67. 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 ...

68. 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), ...

69. 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 ...

70. 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 ...
