22. 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 ...

24. 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 ...

25. 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 ...

26. 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 ...
