91. Measurement of orbital asymmetry and strain in Co^d90^Fe^d10^/Ni multilayers and alloys: Origins of perpendicular anisotropy
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 2/13/2013
Authors: Justin M Shaw, Hans Toya Nembach, Thomas J Silva
Abstract: We use broadband ferromagnetic resonance spectroscopy and x-ray diffraction to investigate the fundamental origin of perpendicular anisotropy in Co^d90^Fe^d10^/Ni multilayers. By careful evaluation of the spectroscopic {I}g{/I}-factor, we determine ...

92. General Guidance on Emergency Communication Strategies for Buildings
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1779
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 2/12/2013
Author: Erica D Kuligowski
Abstract: When a building emergency occurs, it is not always sufficient to simply initiate alarm bells. Individuals may not know what the alarm bell means and as a result may respond inappropriately to its sound. Many buildings have installed mass notif ...

93. Characterization of Airborne Nanoparticle Releases from Consumer Products
Series: OTHER
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 2/6/2013
Authors: Andrew Keith Persily, Michael Magee, Dong H. Rim
Abstract: This letter report provides a project update reflecting the activities to date under the FY2012 interagency agreement between CPSC and NIST to develop testing and measurement protocols for determining the quantities and properties of nanoparticles re ...

94. Multizone Airflow Models for Calculating Infiltration Rates in Commercial Reference Buildings
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 2/6/2013
Authors: Lisa C Ng, Amy Musser, Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: Sixteen commercial reference buildings were created in the multizone airflow and contaminant transport program CONTAM in order to support physically based airflow calculations, as well as indoor air quality analyses, that are not possible using the e ...

95. Indoor ultrafine particles of outdoor origin: importance of window opening area and fan operation condition.
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 2/5/2013
Authors: Dong H. Rim, Lance L. Wallace, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: Airborne ultrafine particles (UFP) have been associated with human mortality and morbidity. Human exposure to ambient UFP occurs indoors due to entry of UFP into buildings. This study investigates UFP entry as a function of building operating conditi ...

96. Development of a Reference Material for Building Product Emissions Testing
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 2/4/2013
Authors: Cynthia H. Reed, Zhe Liu, Steve Cox, Andrew Keith Persily, John Little
Abstract: The business of measuring volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions from building products and materials has grown to include more than 100 laboratories, many with unique testing equipment and analytical techniques. For the purposes of labeling build ...

97. Reference Material to Improve Reliability of Building Product VOC Emissions Testing
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 2/4/2013
Authors: Cynthia H. Reed, Zhe Liu, Steve Cox, John Little
Abstract: Building materials and products are a significant source of volatile organic compounds (VOC) in the indoor environment. Reducing VOC emissions can improve occupant health and productivity, and perhaps support lower building ventilation requirements ...

98. Diffusion-controlled reference material for VOC emissions testing: The effect of temperature and humidity.
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 2/1/2013
Authors: John Little, Liu Zhe, Cynthia H. Reed, Steven Cox
Abstract: To improve the reliability and accuracy of chamber tests for measuring emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from interior building products, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and Virginia Tech (VT) have created a pro ...

99. Indoor ultrafine particles of outdoor origin: importance of building operating conditions
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 2/1/2013
Authors: Dong H. Rim, Lance L. Wallace, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: Airborne ultrafine particles (UFP) have been associated with human mortality and morbidity. Human exposure to ambient UFP occurs indoors due to entry of UFP into buildings. This study investigates UFP infiltration as a function of building operating ...

100. Multizone Modeling of Strategies to Reduce the Spread of Airborne Infectious Agents in Healthcare Facilities
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 2/1/2013
Authors: Steven J Emmerich, David Heinzerling, Jung-il Choi, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: Control of airborne infectious agents in hospitals is critical both to effective health care and to the control of direct and indirect health care costs. Current hospital design guidelines focus on ventilation rates, room pressure control and air fil ...
