1. CONTAM To EnergyPlus Infiltration Features of the CONTAM Results Export Tool
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1873
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 3/30/2015
Authors: Brian J Polidoro, Lisa C Ng, William S Dols, Steven J Emmerich, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: As building envelope performance and HVAC equipment efficiencies continue to be improved to reduce building energy use, a greater percentage of the total energy loss of a building can occur through envelope leakage. Although the energy impacts of ...
