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 ...

12. 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 ...

15. 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 ...

16. 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 ...

17. 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 ...

18. A THERMODYNAMIC ANALYSIS OF REFRIGERANTS: PERFORMANCE LIMITS OF THE VAPOR COMPRESSION CYCLE
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 10/24/2013
Authors: Piotr A Domanski, J S Brown, Janusz Wojtusiak, Mark O McLinden
Abstract: This paper explores the thermodynamic performance limits of the vapor compression cycle. In particular, we apply evolutionary algorithms to explore the performance of thousands of hypothetical refrigerants defined by their thermodynamic parameter ...

20. Desorption Electro-Flow Focusing Ionization of Explosives and Narcotics for Ambient Pressure Mass
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 8/6/2013
Authors: Thomas P Forbes, Timothy M Brewer, John G Gillen
Abstract: Desorption electro-flow focusing ionization (DEFFI), a desorption-based ambient ion source, was developed and evaluated as a possible source for field deployable ambient pressure mass spectrometry (APMS). DEFFI, based on an electro-flow focusing syst ...
