1. A Collection of Homes to Represent the U.S. Housing Stock
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7330
Published: 8/1/2008
Authors: Andrew Keith Persily, Amy Musser, Dennis D Leber
Abstract: In order to allow nationwide analysis of ventilation and indoor air quality issues in residential buildings, a set of homes has been defined to represent the housing stock of the United States. This collection of dwellings is based on two residential ...

2. A Graphical Approach to Evaluating High-Performing Buildings:Indoor Air Quality, Energy, Water, and Waste
Published: 2/20/2014
Authors: Kevin Yale Teichman, Steven J Emmerich, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: In this paper, we describe and demonstrate a graphical approach to illustrating the performance of high-performing buildings. Our approach enables building designers, owners, operators, and occupants to evaluate the performance of a building as desig ...

3. A Modeling Study of Ventilation, IAQ and Energy Impacts of Residential Mechanical Ventilation
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6162
Published: 5/1/1998
Author: Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: Based on concerns about indoor air quality and trends towards tighter envelope construction, there has been increasing interest in mechanical ventilation of residential buildings in the United States. This paper reports on a simulation study of indo ...

4. A Priority Agenda for Energy-Related Indoor Environmental Quality Research
Published: 7/1/2002
Authors: W J Fisk, G Brager, M Brook, H Burge, J Cole, J Cummings, H Levin, V Loftness, T Logee, M J Mendell, Andrew Keith Persily, S Taylor, J Zhang
Abstract: A multidisciplinary team of IEQ and energy researchers is working together to define a program of priority energy-related IEQ research. This paper describes the methods employed, ten high priority broad research and development (R&D) goals, and 34 h ...

5. A Software Tool for Analyzing Building Airflow and Airborne CBR Agent Concentrations
Published: 12/31/2007
Authors: William S Dols, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: Contaminant concentrations that result within buildings in response to airborne chemical, biological and radiological (CBR) events are due to a complex interaction between the building construction, ventilation system performance and weather conditio ...

6. A Suite of Homes Representing the U.S. Housing Stock
Published: 12/1/2003
Authors: Andrew Keith Persily, Dennis D Leber
Abstract: In order to facilitate nationwide analysis of ventilation and indoor air quality issues in residential buildings, a set of homes has been defined to represent the housing stock of the United States. This so-called suite of homes is based on two res ...

7. A stiff variable time step transport solver for CONTAM
Published: 5/10/2013
Authors: David M Lorenzetti, William S Dols, Andrew Keith Persily, Michael D Sohn
Abstract: CONTAM, a multizone model for predicting whole-building airflow and contaminant transport, has been updated to improve the speed and accuracy of its transport calculations. CVODE, a general-purpose code for solving ordinary differential equatio ...

8. ASHRAE Standard 62.1: Problems, Perceptions and Panaceas?
Published: 3/1/2007
Authors: Andrew Keith Persily, Dennis Stanke, Gordon Holness, Richard Hermans
Abstract: ASHRAE Standard 62 was first published in 1973, with the title Standards for Natural and Mechanical Ventilation [REF]. The most recent version (designated as 62.1 and titled Ventilation for Acceptable Indoor Air Quality) was published in 2004, with ...

9. Airflow and Aerosol Transport Modeling in Hart Senate Office Building
Published: 5/23/2002
Authors: Steven J Emmerich, Cynthia H. Reed, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: A modeling study of airflow and contaminant transport in the Hart Senate Office Building (HSOB) was performed to obtain insight into the transport of anthrax spores within the building after a short-term release in October 2001. This analysis employe ...

10. 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 ...
