1. Evaluating Building Ventilation Strategies Using Newly-Developed TRNSYS/CONTAM Simulation Capabilities
Published: 4/3/2014
Authors: William S Dols, Steven J Emmerich, Brian J Polidoro
Abstract: Building energy analysis tools are available in many forms that provide the ability to address a broad spectrum of energy-related issues in various combinations. Often these tools operate in isolation from one another, making it difficult to evaluate ...

2. Analysis of U.S Commercial Building Envelope Air Leakage Database to Support Sustainable Building Design
Published: 3/26/2014
Authors: Steven J Emmerich, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: In 1998, NIST 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 (Persily 1998). Since then, NIST has expanded and maint ...

3. Consideration of Envelope Airtightness in Modelling Commercial Building Energy Consumption
Published: 3/26/2014
Authors: Lisa C Ng, Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: As strategies for improving building envelope and HVAC equipment efficiencies are increasingly required to reduce building energy use, a greater percentage of energy loss will occur through building envelope leakage. Although the energy impacts of un ...

4. 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 ...

5. IAQ 2013 Tools Topic Overview
Published: 2/20/2014
Authors: Steven J Emmerich, Larry Schoen
Abstract: The complex relationships between indoor and outdoor environmental conditions, coupled with the impacts of climate change, make it more important than ever before that buildings be comfortable and healthy for the occupants yet also energy efficient. ...

6. Environmental Health in Low Energy Buildings Topic Overview
Published: 2/11/2014
Authors: Steven J Emmerich, Hal Levin
Abstract: Besides providing thermal comfort and acceptable indoor environmental quality (IEQ), the designers of buildings and other enclosed spaces are increasingly challenged to provide a healthy environment in an energy efficient manner. Increasing pressure ...

7. The IAQ and Energy Impacts of Reducing Formaldehyde Emissions in Commercial Building
Published: 2/11/2014
Authors: Lisa C Ng, Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Emmerich, Kevin Yale Teichman
Abstract: Heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems in buildings are designed to provide thermally comfortable conditions and to maintain acceptable indoor air quality (IAQ). At the same time, the operating costs of HVAC systems are often a la ...

8. Application of a Natural Ventilation System Design Tool To A School Building
Published: 11/8/2013
Authors: Steven J Emmerich, William S Dols, Brian J Polidoro
Abstract: A software tool to aid in the design of natural ventilation systems has recently been udpated. This update implements a general method for sizing of natural ventilation components, which allows direct consideration of stack and wind-driven airflow. T ...

9. Dissecting Interactions Among Indoor Environmental Quality Factors
Published: 11/8/2013
Authors: Hal Levin, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: Many aspects of indoor environmental quality (IEQ) and the technologies that control or otherwise affect it are interactive and often closely connected. This has important implications for the design and construction of buildings as well as for opera ...

10. Indoor Air Quality in High-Performing Building Case Studies: A Wealth of Intent, A Dearth of Data
Published: 9/19/2013
Authors: Kevin Yale Teichman, Steven J Emmerich, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: In this paper, we review how indoor air quality has been addressed in case studies of high-performing buildings, specifically the case studies described in ASHRAE‰s ,High Performing BuildingsŠ magazine. We find that nearly all reported case studies o ...
