91. Theory and Algorithms for Weighted Total Least-Squares Fitting of Lines, Planes, and Parallel Planes to Support Tolerancing Standards
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 8/16/2013
Authors: Craig M Shakarji, Vijay Srinivasan
Abstract: We present the theory and algorithms for fitting a line, a plane, two parallel planes (corresponding to a slot or a slab) or many parallel planes in a total (orthogonal) least-squares sense to coordinate data that is weighted. Each of these problems ...

92. Standard formaldehyde source for chamber testing of material emissions: model development, experimental evaluation and impacts of environmental factors
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 8/14/2013
Authors: Wenjuan Wei, Cynthia H. Reed, Andrew Keith Persily, Yinping Zhang
Abstract: Formaldehyde, which is recognized as a harmful indoor air pollutant for human health, is emitted from urea-formaldehyde resin in wood products. Chamber tests are used to evaluate formaldehyde emission rates from these products. However, there is no a ...

94. Multi-resonant plasmonic nanodome arrays for label-free biosensing applications
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 7/10/2013
Authors: Charles J. Choi, Stephen Semancik
Abstract: The characteristics and utility of plasmonic nanodome arrays capable of supporting multiple resonance modes are described. A low-cost, large-area replica molding process is used to produce, on flexible plastic substrates, two-dimensional periodic arr ...

95. Experimental study of radiative heat transfer in a translucent fuel sample exposed to different spectral sources
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 6/28/2013
Authors: Gregory T Linteris, Nicolas Ball, J. Raynard, Guillermo Rein, Jose L. Torero, M. Forsth, P. Boulet, G. Parent, Z. Acem
Abstract: Radiative heat transfer to a solid is a key mechanism in fire dynamics, and in-depth absorption is especially of importance for translucent fuels. The sample-heater interaction for radiative heat transfer is experimentally investigated in this stud ...

96. Residential Carbon Monoxide Exposure due to Indoor Generator Operation: Effects of Source Location and Emission Rate
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1782
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 6/25/2013
Authors: Andrew Keith Persily, Yanling Wang, Brian J Polidoro, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and others are concerned about the hazard of acute residential carbon monoxide (CO) exposures from portable gasoline powered generators that can result in death or serious and/or lasting adverse ...

97. Consideration of Envelope Airtightness in Modelling Commercial Building Energy Consumption
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 6/24/2013
Authors: Lisa C Ng, Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: As various strategies for improving building envelope and HVAC equipment efficiencies are increasingly used to reduce building energy use, a greater percentage of energy loss will occur through building envelope leakage. Although the energy impacts o ...

98. Hydrated Phases in Blended Cement Systems and Synthetic Saltstone Grouts
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7947
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 6/10/2013
Authors: Kenneth Alan Snyder, Paul E Stutzman
Abstract: A blended binder system (10 % portland cement, 45 % fly ash, and 45 % slag) is characterized as part of a broader study of its long-term effectiveness in stabilizing treated salt waste at the Savannah River Site. The binder system is reproduced in t ...

99. Assessment of the glassy phase reactivity in fly ashes used for geopolymer cements
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 6/1/2013
Authors: Paul E Stutzman, Katherine Aughenbaugh, Maria Juenger
Abstract: Geopolymer cements have not found widespread use as a portland cement replacement, in part due to the difficulty in proportioning mixtures in a reliable manner. Unlike portland cements, which are mixed with water, geopolymer cements contain caus ...

100. Analysis of the NIST Commercial and Institutional Building Envelope Leakage Database
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 5/22/2013
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 ,mythŠ of the airtight commercial building (Persily 1998). Since then, NIST has expanded and mai ...
