73. Airtightness of Commercial Buildings in the United States
Published: 9/21/2005
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 myth of the airtight commercial building. This paper updates the earlier analysis for the U ...

75. What We Think We Know About Ventilation
Published: 9/1/2005
Author: Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: The amount of outdoor air provided to occupied spaces is one of the most important determinants of indoor air quality, but many critical questions and misunderstandings still exist regarding outdoor air ventilation. First, given the importance of ven ...

76. Ventilation Design and Performance in U.S. Office Buildings
Published: 4/30/2005
Authors: Andrew Keith Persily, J Gorfain
Abstract: Building ventilation is a primary determinant of indoor air quality (IAQ) as it impacts contaminant concentrations and occupant comfort in terms of the perception of odor and irritation. However, relatively few measurements of office building ventila ...

80. Simulations of Indoor Air Quality and Ventilation Impacts of Demand Controlled Ventilation in Commercial and Institutional Buildings
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Published: 12/1/2003
Authors: Andrew Keith Persily, A L Musser, Steven J Emmerich, Michael A Taylor
Abstract: Carbon-dioxide (CO2) based demand controlled ventilation (DCV) offers the potential for more energy efficient building ventilation compared with constant ventilation rates based on design occupancy levels. A number of questions related to CO2-based ...
