11. Wind-driven Airflow through Building Openings: Preliminary experimental results using Particle Image Velocimetry
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 7/25/2014
Author: Liang Chung J Lo
Abstract: Today‰s low energy and sustainable buildings often call for innovative designs involving strategies such as natural ventilation. However, natural ventilation airflow is often difficult to estimate, mostly due to the unsteadiness of the wind. This stu ...

12. The red color in 19th century Thai glass studied by X-ray and optical spectroscopy
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 7/2/2014
Authors: Bruce D Ravel, Wantana Klysubun, G. Lawrence Carr, Christoph Hauzenberger
Abstract: The Temple of the Emerald Buddha in Bangkok, Thailand is noted for its glass mosaic decorations on exterior walls and statuary. The original mosaic artwork dates to the early 19th century and is composed of variously-colored, mirrored glass pieces. I ...

13. Elucidating the Effects of Adsorbent Flexibility on Fluid Adsorption Using Simple Models and Flat-Histogram Sampling Methods
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 6/24/2014
Authors: Vincent K Shen, Daniel W Siderius
Abstract: Using flat-histogram Monte Carlo methods, we investigate the adsorptive behavior of the square-well fluid in two simple slit-pore- like models intended to capture fundamental characteristics of flexible adsorbent materials. The models require thermo ...

14. Residential Home Performance Contracting Round Robin Guidelines
Series: Grant/Contract Reports (NISTGCR)
Report Number: 14-976
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 4/17/2014
Authors: Michael Lubliner, Rick Kunkle, David Hales, Melinda Spencer
Abstract: These guidelines describe the important considerations for planning, conducting, analyzing, and disseminating the results of a Home Performance Contactor (HPC) round robin study of a specific aspect of the HPC industry services. The round robin study ...

15. Comparing Methods for Determining Carbon Dioxide Emissions from Stationary Sources
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 3/3/2014
Authors: Rodney A Bryant, Matthew F Bundy, Ruowen Zong
Abstract: The largest source of carbon dioxide emissions is fossil fuel combustion. Since 1990, more than 90% of carbon dioxide emissions within the United States have come from fossil fuel combustion. Stationary sources such as power plants and industrial ...

16. Power Supply Issues for Wireless Sensor Networks: A Review
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 3/1/2014
Authors: Wenqi Guo, William M Healy, Mengchu Zhou
Abstract: Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have enabled numerous embedded wireless applications in different areas such as military/battlefield, environmental monitoring, and intelligent building systems. They consist of a large number of nodes that need to ope ...

18. Review of alternative cooling technologies
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 12/18/2013
Authors: S J Brown, Piotr A Domanski
Abstract: This paper considers the alternative cooling technologies studied by Fisher et al. (1994) and assesses their current performance and market potential in reference to vapor compression technology. First, a taxonomy of cooling technologies based on th ...

19. Constant pressure primary flow standard for gas flows from 0.01 cm^u3^/min to 100 cm^u3^/min (10^u-8^ mol/s to 10^u-5^ mol/s)
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 12/17/2013
Authors: Robert F Berg, Gooding Timothy, Robert Edward Vest
Abstract: We describe a flow meter for gas flows in the range from 0.01 sccm to 100 sccm with a relative standard uncertainty of 0.03 % at 1 sccm. (1 sccm ≈ 1 cm3/min of an ideal gas at 101325 Pa and 0 C ≈ 0.7 mol/s.) The flow meter calibrates a se ...

20. Application of a Natural Ventilation System Design Tool To A School Building
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 11/8/2013
Authors: Steven J Emmerich, William S Dols, Brian J Polidoro
Abstract: A software tool to aid in the design of natural ventilation systems has recently been udpated. This update implements a general method for sizing of natural ventilation components, which allows direct consideration of stack and wind-driven airflow. T ...
