81. 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 ...

82. 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, ...

83. R134a/Al2O3 Nanolubricant Mixture Boiling on a Rectangular Finned Pool Boiling Surface with Extensive Measurement and Analysis Details (NIST TN 1721)
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1721
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 5/16/2013
Author: Mark A Kedzierski
Abstract: This paper quantifies the influence of Al2O3 nanoparticles on the pool boiling performance of R134a/polyolester mixtures on a rectangular finned boiling surface. A nanolubricant containing roughly 10 nm diameter Al2O3 nanoparticles of various vo ...

85. Impact of Test and Foam Design on Smoldering
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1799
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 5/14/2013
Authors: Mauro Zammarano, Szabolcs Matko, Rick D. Davis
Abstract: Smoldering propensity of fabrics used in upholstered furniture can be assessed using foam mockups according to the CPSC proposed regulation. This approach requires a polyurethane flexible foam with reproducible and well- characterized smoldering ...

87. 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 ...

89. 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 ...
