961. Commissioning Cost-Benefit and Persistence of Savings: A Report on Cost-Effective Commissioning of Existing and Low Energy Buildings
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1727
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 9/17/2012
Authors: Hannah Friedman, Marti Frank, David Claridge, Kristin Heinemeier, Kim Crossman, Eliot Crowe, Cory Toole, Natascha Sylvia Milesi-Ferretti, Daniel Choniere
Abstract: Commissioning of new and existing buildings has been shown to reduce energy usage and can also produce non-energy related benefits such as improved occupant comfort. When compared with other initiatives such as installation of high efficiency equ ...

962. Communicating the Emergency: Preliminary findings on the elements of an effective public warning message
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 4/4/2011
Author: Erica D Kuligowski
Abstract: When an emergency occurs, it is not always sufficient to simply initiate alarm bells. Individuals may not know what the alarm bell means and, in turn, respond inappropriately to its sound. Many buildings have installed mass notification or emergency ...

964. Community-Scale Fire Spread
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6891
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 7/1/2002
Authors: Ronald George Rehm, Anthony P Hamins, Howard Richard Baum, Kevin B McGrattan, D D Evans
Abstract: This paper addresses community-scale fires, which have also been called urban/wildland interface or intermix fires. These fires arise when wildlandfires invade the built environment and attack structures as well as wildland fuels. The prediction of t ...

965. Comparable Performance Evaluation of HC and HFC Refrigerants in an Optimized System
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 5/28/2006
Authors: Piotr A Domanski, David A Yashar
Abstract: This paper presents an analytical evaluation of isobutene (R600a), propane (R290), R134a, R22, R41OA, and R32 in a vapor compression system used for comfort cooling applications. The evaluation method was based on a system simulation model that was c ...

966. Comparative Performance of Two Postal Service Vehicles Operated on Gasoline, Compressed Natural Gas and Propane
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 11/17/1974
Authors: J. E. Hill, David Didion
Abstract: The operational and exhaust emission characteristics of a 1/2-ton and a 1-ton truck run on three different fuels gasoline, compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied petroleum gas or propane (LPG) were measured. The vehicles were put into an environm ...

967. Comparing Analytical Methods for Detecting and Characterizing Nanoparticles in Formulated Products
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 10/1/2008
Authors: Katherine M. Tyner, Anna M. Wokovich, William H. Doub, Lucinda F. Buhse, Li Piin Sung, Stephanie S Watson, Nakissa Sadrieh
Abstract: To understand the extent of consumer exposure to nanomaterials as well as how nanomaterials impact consumer goods, it is necessary to detect and characterize nanomaterials in unmodified final products. Although there are pathways to characterize nano ...

969. Comparing Numerical and Experimental Results for the Shielding Properties of a Doubly-Periodic Array of Apertures in a Thick Conducting Screen
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 8/1/2006
Authors: Derik Love, John M Ladbury, Edward J. Rothwell
Abstract: The application of mode-matching to determine the shielding properties of thick screens containing a doubly-periodic array of apertures has been demonstrated through numerical results. The geometries used for generating the numerical data were intend ...
