41. Properties for Accurate Gas Flow Measurements
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 10/15/2010
Author: John D Wright
Abstract: Accurate gas properties are needed to take full advantage of the low uncertainties provided by NIST‰s Gas Flow Calibration Services. If a flowmeter user and NIST use different values for these properties (molecular mass, compressibility, density, vis ...

Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 8/2/2010
Authors: Mark A Kedzierski, David Venerus, Jacopo Buongiorno, Rebecca Christianson, Jessica Townsend, In Cheol Bang, Gang Chen, Sung Jae Chung, Minking Chyu, Haisheng Chen, Yulong Ding, F. Dubois, Grzegorz Dzido, Denis Funfschilling, Quentin Galand, Jinwei Gao, Haiping Hong, Mark Horton, Lin-wen Hu, Carlo Iorio, Andrzej Jarzebski, Yiran Jiang, Stephan Kabelac, Chongyoup Kim, Ji Hyun Kim, Sukwon Kim, Thomas McKrell, Rui Ni, John Philip, Naveen Prabhat, Pengxiang Song, Stefan Van Vaerenbergh, Dongsheng Wen, Sanjeeva Witharana, Xiao-Zheng Zhao, Sheng-Qi Zhou
Abstract: This article reports viscosity data on a series of colloidal dispersions collected as part of the International Nanofluid Property Benchmark Exercise (INPBE). Data are reported for seven different fluids that include dispersions of metal-oxide nanop ...

43. Evolutionary Computation Approach to Heat Exchanger Design
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 6/26/2010
Authors: David A Yashar, Janusz Wojusiak, Kenneth Kaufman, Piotr A Domanski
Abstract: The efficiency of a vapor compression system is strongly influenced by the performance of the finned-tube heat exchangers it employs. Heat exchanger performance is strongly influenced by the refrigerant circuitry, i.e., the connection sequence of th ...

44. Evaporator Optimization for Non-Uniform Air Distribution
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 6/13/2010
Authors: Piotr A Domanski, David A Yashar, Sunil Lee
Abstract: This study demonstrates the performance improvements that can be achieved by accounting for the in-situ air flow distribution during the design phase of a heat exchanger. The heat exchanger used in this study was a two-slab, A-shaped finned-tube eva ...

45. Feasibility of an Accurate Dynamic Standard for Water Flow
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 6/1/2010
Authors: Iosif I Shinder, Michael R Moldover
Abstract: We used NIST's primary water flow standard to study the feasibility of accurately determining mass flow rates {I}m{/I}^ddot^ of water "dynamically," that is from the time derivative of the weight {I}W{/I} of the collection tank: {I}m{/I ...

46. Development of the Reference Model for a Residential Heat Pump System for Cooling Mode Fault Detection and Diagnosis
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 4/2/2010
Authors: M Kim, Seok H. Yoon, Piotr A Domanski, William V Payne
Abstract: Development of a reference model to predict the value of system parameters during fault free operation is a basic step for fault detection and diagnosis (FDD). In order to develop an accurate and effective reference model of a heat pump system, expe ...

47. Measurement Science Roadmap for Net-Zero Energy Buildings
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1660
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 3/18/2010
Authors: Joan Pellegrino, Arthur Hunter Fanney, Andrew Keith Persily, Piotr A Domanski, William M Healy, Steven T Bushby
Abstract: Buildings account for nearly a third of the world s energy use today, and this share is expected to rise along with population growth and levels of prosperity. In the United States, residential and commercial buildings consume about 40% of primary en ...

48. Uncertainty Analysis of Thermal Transmission Properties Determined by ASTM C 177
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 3/1/2010
Author: Robert R Zarr
Abstract: An uncertainty analysis for steady-state thermal transmission properties determined by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) 1016 mm Guarded-Hot-Plate apparatus is presented for fibrous-glass blanket and expanded polystyrene board ...

49. Effect of Diamond Nanolubricant on R134A Pool Boiling Heat Transfer
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 12/15/2009
Author: Mark A Kedzierski
Abstract: This paper quantifies the influence of diamond 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 base ...
