11. A Differential Form of the Kramers-Kronig Relation for Determining a Lorentz-Type of Refractive Index
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 7/22/2015
Authors: Sung Kim, David R Novotny, Joshua A Gordon, Jeffrey R Guerrieri
Abstract: The integral forms of the Kramers-Kronig (KK) relations that relate the real and imaginary parts, n' and n", of a refractive index require the integral to be conducted over the full spectrum. In this paper, we derive a differential form of the KK rel ...

12. Indoor Environmental Resilience: White Paper
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 7/16/2015
Authors: Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: NIST is developing a framework to define programs and strategies to increase community-based resilience in the face of a broad range of natural disasters and other extreme events. Many of these events will affect indoor environmental quality either t ...

13. Interference and Coexistence of Wireless Systems in Critical Infrastructure
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1885
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 7/7/2015
Authors: Galen H Koepke, William F Young, John M Ladbury, Jason B Coder
Abstract: We examine interference and coexistence testing issues, test methods, and the need to update and develop new test methodologies related to the use of wireless devices in critical infrastructure systems. A case study on interference is presented ...

14. Modeling Particle Resuspension for Estimating Exposure to Bacillus Spores
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1841
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 6/11/2015
Authors: William S Dols, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: A key challenge in assessing the risks of low level contaminations following biological threat agent releases, and subsequent decontamination, is developing an understanding of and addressing the potential for airborne resuspension of agents that ...

15. Experimental and Modeling Study of Thermal Exposure of a Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA)
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 6/10/2015
Authors: Michelle K Donnelly, Jiann C Yang
Abstract: An experimental apparatus designed to study firefighter turnout gears exposed to a thermal environment was developed. The apparatus consisted of an elevated temperature flow loop with the ability to heat the air stream up to 200 ºC. The thermal a ...

16. IAQ and Energy Impacts of Ventilation and Source Control in a Big Box Retail Building
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 6/10/2015
Authors: Lisa C Ng, Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: Heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems in buildings are designed to provide thermally comfortable conditions and to maintain acceptable indoor air quality (IAQ). At the same time, the operating costs of HVAC systems are often a lar ...

17. Development of Standardized Cooking Fires for Evaluation of Prevention Technologies: Data Analysis
Series: Grant/Contract Reports (NISTGCR)
Report Number: 15-917-36
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 5/27/2015
Authors: Joshua Dinaburg, daniel gottuck
Abstract: Beginning in 2010, the Foundation began a program to review the potential effectiveness of various technologies potentially capable of preventing cooking range top fires. A workshop conducted as part of that project considered the emergence of ...

18. Indoor Air Quality in High-Performing Building Case Studies: Got Data?
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 5/12/2015
Authors: Kevin Yale Teichman, Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: In this paper, we review how indoor air quality (IAQ) has been addressed in case studies of high-performing buildings (HPBs), specifically the case studies described in ASHRAE‰s ,High Performing BuildingsŠ magazine. We find that nearly all of the re ...
