1. Alarm Information for Decision Support
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1614
Topic: Cybernetic Building Systems
Published: 11/4/2010
Authors: William D. Davis, Adam M. Barowy, Stephen Kerber
Abstract: Experiments conducted in a Toledo Ohio school are used to examine the use of signals from simulated heat detectors by incident command. Two approaches are examined. The first is to use the signal from ceiling mounted thermocouples to deduce condit ...

2. An Investigation of Refrigerant Void Fraction in Horizontal, Microfin Tubes
Topic: Cybernetic Building Systems
Published: 1/1/2001
Authors: David A Yashar, M J Wilson, HM RJ Kopke, D M Graham, J C Chato, TJD ACM Newell
Abstract: A series of experiments to determine void fraction in both condensation and evaporation have been performed in horizontal microfin tubes with refrigerants R134a and R410A. Mass flux varied from 75 kg/m2-s to 700 kg/m2-s and average test section qual ...

3. Assessment of Performance Metrics for Use of Wireless Sensor Networks in Buildings
Topic: Cybernetic Building Systems
Published: 9/30/2009
Authors: Won Suk Jang, William M Healy
Abstract: This paper is part of an effort to develop measurement systems and methods to better predict the performance of wireless sensor and control networks in building applications. Because of the variability in application requirements, the development of ...

4. Authentication and Authorization of Building Information Users in BACnet
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1615
Topic: Cybernetic Building Systems
Published: 1/1/2008
Authors: Stephen J. Treado, Alan B. Vinh, Steven T Bushby
Abstract: Building automation systems frequently monitor critical building information that would be extremely useful for emergency responders including the status of alarms, locations of occupants, temperature, and air quality conditions. Emergency response c ...

5. Building Networks and Public Safety Communications
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1608
Topic: Cybernetic Building Systems
Published: 11/18/2008
Authors: David G Holmberg, Stephen J. Treado, William D. Davis, Steven T Bushby, Alan B. Vinh, Michael A Galler, R Vettori
Abstract: The Building Networks and Public Safety Communications project has three components: (1) addressing feasibility of using building networks for bridging first responder radio communications into buildings, (2) recommending changes to the SAFECOM State ...

6. Design, Measurements and Performance Predictions for a Micromolded Refrigerant Expansion Device
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7327
Topic: Cybernetic Building Systems
Published: 4/3/2006
Author: David A Yashar
Abstract: The design, fabrication and testing of a thermopneumatic microfabricated valve for controlling refrigerant mass flow rate during expansion is presented in this report. This device was fabricated through nickel electroplating within very thick SU-8 m ...

7. Detecting Cooling Coil Fouling Automatically-Part 2: Results Using a Multilayer Perceptron
Topic: Cybernetic Building Systems
Published: 9/1/2010
Author: Daniel A Veronica
Abstract: The novel concept to detect cooling coil fouling automatically with an embedded data‹driven agent using expert signature maps, introduced in a companion paper (Veronica 2010), is exercised here on data from computer simulations of clean and fouled co ...

8. Energy Consumption Measurements Using AHAM HRF-1 and ISO 8561
Topic: Cybernetic Building Systems
Published: 3/10/2003
Author: David A Yashar
Abstract: This investigation compares the energy consumption ratings obtained for refrigerators using the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers (AHAM) HRF-1 test procedure, as adopted by the United States Department of Energy (DOE), and the International ...

9. Energy Systems Management and Greenhouse Gas Reduction
Topic: Cybernetic Building Systems
Published: 4/6/2008
Authors: Stephen J. Treado, David G Holmberg
Abstract: The efficient use of energy provides the double benefits of controlling both energy costs and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.  The industrial sector comprises about one third of United States GHG emissions, so presents an attractive opportunity ...

10. Experimental Study of the Thermal Impacts on Wireless Sensor Batteries
Topic: Cybernetic Building Systems
Published: 4/10/2013
Authors: Wenqi Guo, William M Healy, Mengchu Zhou
Abstract: Wireless sensor networks are being considered for application within buildings to control various equipment in different working environments. As wireless sensors are powered by commercially available batteries, battery performance will directly affe ...
