81. 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 ...

82. 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 ...

83. The Effects of Wildfire Prevention Activities
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 8/1/2013
Authors: Douglas S Thomas, David T Butry, Jeffrey P. Prestemon
Abstract: Eighty percent of wildfires are human caused, so it is important for decision makers and land managers to consider the role of prevention activities that minimize the costs and losses of human-caused wildfires. There have been significant efforts aim ...

84. G-band micro-fabricated frequency-steered arrays with 2{degree}/GHz beam steering
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 7/17/2013
Authors: Leonardo Matteo Ranzani, Daniel G. Kuester, Kenneth Vanhille, Anatoliy Boryssenko, Erich N Grossman, Zoya Popovic
Abstract: In this paper, we describe micro-fabricated frequency-scanned slot waveguide arrays operating between 130 and 180 GHz for planetary landing radar. The group delay dispersion of the feed line is increased by corrugating the bottom rectangular wave ...

86. Characterizing Large-Form-Factor Devices in a Reverberation Chamber
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 7/15/2013
Authors: Catherine A Remley, Gerrit Stefan van de Beek, Christopher L Holloway, John M Ladbury
Abstract: Abstract,With new technologies such as machine-to-machine communications there is a growing need to test large-formfactor devices in reverberation chambers. The performance of the reverberation chamber can be degraded by the physical characteristics ...

88. 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 ...

89. 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 ...

90. 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 ...
