11. Dielectric characterization by microwave cavity perturbation corrected for non-uniform fields
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 7/23/2014
Authors: Nathan Daniel Orloff, Jan Obrzut, Christian John Long, Thomas Fung Lam, James C Booth, David R Novotny, James Alexander Liddle, Pavel Kabos
Abstract: The non-uniform fields that occur due to the slot in the cavity through which the sample is inserted and those due to the sample geometry itself decrease the accuracy of dielectric characterization by cavity perturbation at microwave frequencies. ...

12. BEHAVIOR OF STEEL COMPONENTS SUBJECTED TO LOCALIZED FIRE
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 6/11/2014
Authors: Chao Zhang, John L Gross, Lisa Yong yae Choe
Abstract: Recent numerical studies on the behavior of steel components subjected to a localized fire are presented. Sequentially coupled thermo-mechanical simulations were conducted to predict the steel temperature distribution, the deformation mode and fa ...

14. Absorptive Limiter for Frequency Selective Circuits
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 6/1/2014
Authors: Juan C. Collado Gomez, Eduard Rocas, James C Booth, Jordi Mateu, J. M. O'Callaghan, J. Verdu, A. Hueltes
Abstract: This paper describes a novel absorptive limiter for frequency selective circuits. The proposed circuit allows the design of absorptive limiters based on a bi-state phase shifter, which is appropriate for integration into channelizing devices, ...

15. The Case for Delivering the Infrastructure for Digital Building Regulations
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 5/19/2014
Authors: Mark E Palmer, James H Garrett
Abstract: The building industry uses numerous engineering standards, building codes, specifications and regulations and a diverse set of industry vocabularies to describe, assess, and deliver constructed facilities. As part of the expanding use of building in ...

16. Characterization of Emissions from Spray Polyurethane Foam: Letter Report to U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission Interagency Agreement CPSC-I-13-0016
Series: OTHER
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 5/15/2014
Authors: Dustin G Poppendieck, Matthew P Schlegel, Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Nabinger
Abstract: This letter report provides a project update reflecting the activities to date under the FY2013 interagency agreement between CPSC and NIST. The objective of that agreement is to develop testing and measurement protocols for determining the quantitie ...

17. Effectiveness of an in-duct electrostatic precipitator in nanoparticle removal with consideration of ozone emissions
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 5/15/2014
Authors: Dong H. Rim, Dustin G Poppendieck, Lance L. Wallace, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: Human exposure to ultrafine particles (UFP, < 100 nm) has been shown to have adverse health effects such as respiratory impacts and cardiovascular mortality. UFP concentrations can be elevated in occupied buildings due to prevalence of UFP sources wi ...
