41. Effect of Al2O3 Nanolubricant on R134a Pool Boiling Heat Transfer
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 9/8/2012
Author: Mark A Kedzierski
Abstract: This paper quantifies the influence of Al2O3 nanoparticles on the pool boiling performance of R134a/polyolester mixtures on a roughened, horizontal, flat surface. Nanofluids are liquids that contain dispersed nano-size particles. A lubricant based ...

42. CYCLE_D: NIST Vapor Compression Cycle Design Program Version 5.0
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 5/1/2012
Authors: J S Brown, Piotr A Domanski, Eric W Lemmon

43. Ultra-small-Angle X-ray Scattering ‹ X-ray Photon-Correlation Spectroscopy Studies of Incipient Structural Changes in Amorphous Calcium Phosphate Based Dental Composites
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 2/28/2012
Authors: Fan Zhang, Andrew John Allen, Lyle E Levine, Laura Espinal, Joseph M Antonucci, Drago Skrtic, Justin N.R. O'Donnell, Jan Ilavsky
Abstract: The local structural changes in amorphous calcium phosphate (ACP) based dental composites were studied upon heating using both static, bulk measurement techniques and recently developed ultra-small angle X-ray scattering ‹ X-ray photon correlation sp ...

44. NIST Standard Reference Database 73 REFLEAK: NIST Leak/Recharge Simulation Model for Refrigerant Mixtures, Version 4.0
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 1/16/2012
Authors: David Didion, MinSoo Kim, Piotr A Domanski

45. Prototype Commercial Buildings for Energy and Sustainability Assessment: Design Specification, Life- Cycle Costing and Carbon Assessment
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1732
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 1/10/2012
Author: Joshua D Kneifel

46. Ventilation Measurements in IAQ Studies: Problems and Opportunities
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 8/30/2011
Authors: Andrew Keith Persily, Hal Levin
Abstract: Building and space ventilation rates are primary determinants of indoor pollutant levels and occupant exposures, and the impacts of ventilation on health and comfort have long been recognized in ventilation standards and regulations. Despite the im ...

47. Alternative Cooling Technology Options
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 8/21/2011
Authors: J S Brown, Piotr A Domanski
Abstract: This paper considers the alternative cooling technologies studied by Fisher et al. (1994) and assesses their current potential to compete with or to replace vapor compression refrigeration technology for space cooling and near-room temperature refrig ...

Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 7/5/2011
Authors: Santiago Martinez-Ballester, Jose M. Corberan, Jose Gonzalvez-Macia, Piotr A Domanski
Abstract: Most of the current air-to-refrigerant heat exchanger models use the classic ε-NTU approach. These models do not account for 2D longitudinal heat conduction in the tube and the longitudinal heat conduction in the fin. These models, also do not ...

49. A Computational and Experimental Investigation of Thermal Desorption and Vapor Sampling in an Explosive Trace Detector
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 6/30/2011
Authors: Matthew E Staymates, Wayne Smith, Eric S Windsor
Abstract: Swipe-based explosive trace detectors rely on thermal desorption to vaporize explosive particles collected on a swipe. The vaporized material is carried by air flows from the desorption unit to the inlet of the chemical analyzer, typically an ion mo ...

50. Bilateral Comparison Confirms NIM‰s and NIST‰s Gas Flow Capabilities
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 10/15/2010
Authors: Aaron N Johnson, CHUNHUI LI
Abstract: The bilateral comparison between NIM and NIST for gas flow was conducted from June 2008 to October 2009. Two critical flow venturis (CFVs) with nominal throat diameters of 10 mm and 20 mm, respectively, were selected as transfer standards. The CFVs w ...
