61. Inter-laboratory study approach to validate the performance of a prototype reference material for product emissions testing
Published: 5/2/2011
Authors: Cynthia H. Reed, Andrew Keith Persily, Zhe Liu, Steve Cox, John Little, Wolfgang Horn, Olaf Wilke, Katharina Wiegner
Abstract: Product emissions chamber testing involves a complex protocol with several sources of measurement uncertainty (ASTM, 2010; ISO, 2006). Despite the potential for significant variability in measurement results within and among laboratories, there is no ...

62. Effects of ozone treatment on fungal growth, chemical components and surface morphological characteristics of wood flooring materials
Published: 2/16/2011
Authors: Chi Phuong Hoang, Tinh Nguyen, Deborah L Stanley, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: The effects of ozone treatment and extraction on fungal activities of bamboo and red-oak flooring materials have been investigated. One set of wood samples was extracted with cyclohexane and ethanol for 48 hours to remove extractable compounds. Anot ...

63. Ventilation Rates and Health: Multidisciplinary Review of the Scientific Literature
Published: 11/25/2010
Authors: Andrew Keith Persily, Jan Sundell, Hal Levin
Abstract: The scientific literature through 2005 on the effects of ventilation rates on health in non-industrial indoor environments (offices, schools, homes, etc.) has been reviewed by a multidisciplinary group of scientists from diverse fields relevant to in ...

64. Impacts of Airtightening Retrofits on Ventilation Rates and Energy Consumption in a Manufactured Home
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1673
Published: 9/30/2010
Authors: Steven J Nabinger, Andrew Keith Persily, William S Dols
Abstract: A retrofit study was conducted in a manufactured house to investigate the impacts of airtightening on ventilation rates and energy consumption. This paper describes the retrofits and the results of the pre- and post-retrofit assessment of building ai ...

65. Indoor Air Quality in Sustainable, Energy Efficient Buildings
Published: 8/15/2010
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 netzero energy use, are ...

66. Infiltration of Outdoor Ultrafine Particles into a Test House
Published: 8/2/2010
Authors: Dong H. Rim, Lance L. Wallace, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: Ultrafine particles (UFP) have been related to adverse human health effects such as respiratory and cardiovascular mortality. However, human exposure to particles of outdoor origin is heavily dependent on their infiltration into homes, where most peo ...

67. Modeled Infiltration Rate Distributions for U.S. Housing
Published: 7/18/2010
Authors: Andrew Keith Persily, Amy Musser, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: A set of 209 dwellings that represent 80 % of U.S. housing stock was used to generate frequenc distributions of residential ventilation rates. The set of homes is based on an anal sis of the 1997 U.S. Department of Energ s Residential Energ Consum ...

68. Development and Demonstration of a Method to Evaluate Bio-Sampling Strategies Using Building Simulation and Sample Planning Software
Published: 6/10/2010
Authors: William S Dols, Jayne B Morrow, Andrew Keith Persily, Brett Matzke, Landon Sego, Lisa Nuffer, Brent Pulsipher
Abstract: response and recovery sampling approaches and technologies, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), along with several other agencies, have simulated a biothreat agent release within a facility at Idaho National Laboratory (INL) on two separa ...

69. Better IAQ using ASHRAE Guide
Published: 5/3/2010
Authors: Andrew Keith Persily, Martha Hewett
Abstract: Over the years, there have been many important contributions directed towards improving IAQ in buildings, including Standard 62.1 and other publications (EPA and NIOSH 1991; SMACNA 2007). In addition, ASHRAE, the International Society for Indoor Air ...

70. Measurement Science Roadmap for Net-Zero Energy Buildings
