91. 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 ...

92. 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 ...

93. 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 ...

94. 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 ...

95. 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 ...

96. MIMO Capacity in 2-D and 3-D Isotropic Environments
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 5/21/2013
Authors: Ryan J. Pirkl, Catherine A Remley
Abstract: We analyze the distribution of MIMO channel capacity for different antennas in 2-D and 3-D statistically isotropic environments. These represent possible test environments that may be generated by multi-probe anechoic and reverberation chambers, ...

97. Wildland-Urban Interface Fire Research Needs- Summary Report
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1150
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 5/14/2013
Authors: Nelson P Bryner, Erik L Johnsson
Abstract: In response to the increasing losses due to WUI fires and to ensure that measurement science keeps pace with needed improvements in materials, fire-resistant design, mitigation response, and building and fire codes, NIST sponsored the Workshop ...

98. Development of Standard Reference Materials for Cement-Based Materials
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 5/13/2013
Authors: Chiara F Ferraris, Nicos Martys, William L George
Abstract: Rheometers are used to determine the rheological properties of materials ranging from mayonnaise to concrete. While rotational rheometers are routinely used for homogeneous materials such as mayonnaise, their usage for characterization of a granular ...

99. A stiff variable time step transport solver for CONTAM
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 5/10/2013
Authors: David M Lorenzetti, William S Dols, Andrew Keith Persily, Michael D Sohn
Abstract: CONTAM, a multizone model for predicting whole-building airflow and contaminant transport, has been updated to improve the speed and accuracy of its transport calculations. CVODE, a general-purpose code for solving ordinary differential equatio ...

100. Cross-sectional stability of wide flange structural steel columns at elevated temperatures
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 5/1/2013
Authors: Mina Samir Seif, Therese P McAllister
Abstract: There is a lack of understanding of how structural systems perform under realistic, uncontrolled fires. Fire protection of steel structures is usually provided through prescriptive requirements. The development of performance-based standards and ...
