91. Indoor Air Quality in High-Performing Building Case Studies:A Wealth of Intent, A Dearth of Data
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 9/19/2013
Authors: Kevin Yale Teichman, Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: In this paper, we review how indoor air quality has been addressed in case studies of high-performing buildings, specifically the case studies described in ASHRAE‰s ,High Performing BuildingsŠ magazine. We find that nearly all reported case studies ...

92. Exploratory Study of Airflow from SCBA Exposed to Elevated Temperatures
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1809
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 9/18/2013
Authors: Michelle K Donnelly, Daniel Madrzykowski, Anthony D Putorti Jr
Abstract: This exploratory set of experiments investigated the impact of external exposure temperatures on Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) supply air, and the potential for the supply air to be heated when it is subjected to an elevated tempera ...

93. High Pressure Release and Dispersion of Hydrogen in a Partially Enclosed Compartment : Effect of Natural and Forced Ventilation
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 9/2/2013
Authors: Kuldeep R Prasad, Thomas George Cleary, Jiann C Yang
Abstract: The study of compressed hydrogen release from high-pressure storage systems has practical application for hydrogen and fuel cell technologies. Such releases may occur either due to accidental damage to a storage tank or connecting piping, or due to ...

Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 9/1/2013
Author: Anthony P Hamins
Abstract: This article identifies research needs in automotive fire protection. The work focuses on the problem of post-collision vehicle fires. Recent fire suppression research is cited with special attention given to results cited in the literature as well ...

95. Smokeview (Version 6) - A Tool for Visualizing Fire Dynamics Simulation Data Volume II: Technical Reference Guide
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1017-2
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 8/28/2013
Author: Glenn P Forney
Abstract: Smokeview is a software tool designed to visualize numerical calculations generated by the Fire Dynamics Simulator (FDS), a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model of fire-driven fluid flow. This report documents some of the algorithms Smokeview ...

96. 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 ...

97. 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 ...

Published: 7/17/2013
Authors: Chiara F Ferraris, Jussara Tanesi
Abstract: N/A

99. 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 ...

100. 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 ...
