11. Comparative study of methods to measure the density of Cementious powders
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 12/14/2015
Authors: Michelle Annette Helsel, Chiara F Ferraris, Dale P Bentz
Abstract: The accurate measurement of the density of hydraulic cement plays an essential role in the determination of concrete mixture proportions. As more supplementary cementitious materials (SCM), such as fly ash and slag, or cement replacement materials, ...

12. An Industrial Control System Cybersecurity Performance Testbed
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 8089
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 12/10/2015
Authors: Richard Candell, Timothy Aaron Zimmerman, Keith A Stouffer
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is developing a cybersecurity performance testbed for industrial control systems. The goal of the testbed is to measure the performance of industrial control systems (ICS) when instrumente ...

13. Using Coupled Energy, Airflow and IAQ Software (TRNSYS/CONTAM) to Evaluate Building Ventilation Strategies
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 12/10/2015
Authors: William S Dols, Steven J Emmerich, Brian J Polidoro
Abstract: Building energy analysis tools are available in many forms that provide the ability to address a broad spectrum of energy-related issues in various combinations. Often these tools operate in isolation from one another, making it difficult to evaluate ...

18. Enforcing realizability in explicit multi-component species transport
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 10/5/2015
Authors: Randall Joseph McDermott, Kevin B McGrattan, Jason Floyd
Abstract: A strategy is proposed to guarantee realizability of species mass fractions in explicit time integration of the partial differential equations governing fire dynamics, which is multi-component transport problem. For a mixture of $n$ species, the c ...
