91. Trapping atoms using nanoscale quantum vacuum forces
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 7/10/2014
Authors: Jacob M Taylor, Darrick E. Chang, Kanupriya Sinha, H J Kimble
Abstract: Quantum vacuum forces dictate the interaction between individual atoms and dielectric surfaces at nanoscale distances. For example, their large strengths typically overwhelm externally applied forces, which makes it challenging to controllably interf ...

92. Traceability for Millimeter and Submillimeter-Wave Power Measurements
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 5/21/2014
Author: Ronald A Ginley
Abstract: The need for traceable power measurements above 110 GHz is well established for use in communications, spectral line investigation, molecular particle signature identification, material property characterization and others. There have been increment ...

93. Flame Inhibition by CF3CHCl2 (HCFC-123)
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 5/20/2014
Authors: Valeri Ivan Babushok, Gregory T Linteris, Oliver Meier, John Leonard Pagliaro
Abstract: A kinetic model is suggested for hydrocarbon-air flame propagation with addition of hydrochloroflurocarbon (HCFC) fire suppressants, encompassing the combined chemistry of fluorine- and chlorine-containing species. Calculated burning velocities ...

94. The Case for Delivering the Infrastructure for Digital Building Regulations
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 5/19/2014
Authors: Mark E Palmer, James H Garrett
Abstract: The building industry uses numerous engineering standards, building codes, specifications and regulations and a diverse set of industry vocabularies to describe, assess, and deliver constructed facilities. As part of the expanding use of building in ...

95. Characterization of Emissions from Spray Polyurethane Foam: Letter Report to U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission Interagency Agreement CPSC-I-13-0016
Series: OTHER
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 5/15/2014
Authors: Dustin G Poppendieck, Matthew P Schlegel, Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Nabinger
Abstract: This letter report provides a project update reflecting the activities to date under the FY2013 interagency agreement between CPSC and NIST. The objective of that agreement is to develop testing and measurement protocols for determining the quantitie ...

96. Effectiveness of an in-duct electrostatic precipitator in nanoparticle removal with consideration of ozone emissions
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 5/15/2014
Authors: Dong H. Rim, Dustin G Poppendieck, Lance L. Wallace, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: Human exposure to ultrafine particles (UFP, < 100 nm) has been shown to have adverse health effects such as respiratory impacts and cardiovascular mortality. UFP concentrations can be elevated in occupied buildings due to prevalence of UFP sources wi ...

100. An improved method of modeling infiltration in commercial building energy models
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1829
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 4/28/2014
Authors: Lisa C Ng, Steven J Emmerich, Andrew Keith Persily
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 can occur through building envelope leakage. Although the energy impacts of ...
