81. Potential Research Areas in Residential Energy Storage for NIST‰s Engineering Laboratory
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1844
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 9/25/2014
Authors: Mark A Kedzierski, William V Payne, Harrison M Skye
Abstract: This paper recommends research that is required to develop and, thus, enable cost effective, residential electricity storage systems for renewable energy. As residential electricity generation from renewable sources becomes more prevalent, resid ...

Series: Grant/Contract Reports (NISTGCR)
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 9/18/2014
Authors: Maria Garlock, Jo? Kruppa, Guo-Qiang Li, Li, Bin Zhao
Abstract: This white paper presents the state-of-the-art of large-scale experiments, modeling, and performance-based design efforts in fire behavior of steel structures

83. White Paper on Fire Resistance of Concrete Structures
Series: Grant/Contract Reports (NISTGCR)
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 9/18/2014
Authors: Luke Bisby, Hossein Mostafaei, Pierre Pimienta
Abstract: This white paper presents the current, international, state-of-the-art large-scale experimental, modeling, and performance-based design (PBD) efforts related to structural fire resistance of concrete structures. The paper addresses these topics wit ...

84. White Paper on Fire Resistance of Timber Structures
Series: Grant/Contract Reports (NISTGCR)
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 9/18/2014
Authors: Andrew Buchanan, Birgit SP Wood Technology, Sweden ¿tman, Andrea Frangi
Abstract: Fire resistance of timber structures is a very large field. In order to keep this document relatively small, the scope of is limited as follows: , This report attempts to define a Performance-Based framework for the fire safety design of multi-sto ...

85. Nanoscale Kirkendall effect and oxidation kinetics in copper nanocrystals characterized by real-time, in-situ optical spectroscopy
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 9/5/2014
Authors: Katherine P. Rice, Andrew Paterson, Mark Stoykovich
Abstract: The low-temperature oxidation of ~10 nm diameter copper nanocrystals was characterized using in-situ UV-vis absorbance spectroscopy and observed to lead to hollow copper oxide shells via the nanoscale Kirkendall effect. The kinetics of the oxidation ...

86. Improvement in the Evaluation of a Rectangular Waveguide Microcalorimeter Correction Factor
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 8/29/2014
Authors: Thomas P. Crowley, Weihai Fang
Abstract: The correction factor of the National Institute of Standards and Technology‰s WR-15 (50 to 75 GHz) microcalorimeters has been re-evaluated. Use of modeled values for the reflection coefficient of a flat short and offset short instead of measured valu ...

87. Relative Humidity Effects on Rectangular Waveguide Thermistor Sensors
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 8/24/2014
Author: Thomas P. Crowley
Abstract: A correlation between the relative humidity nd the effective efficiency of several rectangular waveguide thermistor sensors has been observed. The difference between effective efficiency measurements made at 10 % and 30 % relative humidity can be 10 ...

88. Dielectrofluidics for Electronic-Based Chemical and Particle Analysis
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 8/18/2014
Authors: James C Booth, Spencer Thomas Egan, Charles Anderson Enright Little, A Padilla, Yu Y. Wang, Nathan D Orloff
Abstract: The interactions of electromagnetic fields with matter are described by means of the polarization and magnetization of the material under study. Analogous to the way that magnetofluidics seeks to exploit magnetic interactions for sensing and manipula ...

89. Effect of Ozonation on Fungal Resistance of Bamboo and Oak
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 8/15/2014
Authors: Chi Hoang, Tinh Nguyen, Deborah Stanley Jacobs, Andrew Keith Persily, Richard Cosi
Abstract: Wood is gaining increased interest as a renewable building material. However, color changes, chemical and microbiological degradation can occur when lignocellulosic materials are exposed to environmental stressors such as ozone and elevated humidity. ...

90. Infiltration in energy modeling: a simple equation made better
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 8/8/2014
Authors: Lisa C Ng, Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: As building envelope performance and HVAC equipment efficiencies continue to be improved to reduce building energy use, a greater percentage of the total energy loss of a building can occur through envelope leakage. Although the energy impacts of uni ...
