3. Detecting leaks in gas-filled pressure vessels using acoustic resonances
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 5/6/2016
Authors: Keith A Gillis, Michael R Moldover, James B. Mehl
Abstract: We demonstrate that a leak from a large, unthermostatted pressure vessel into ambient air can be detected an order of magnitude more effectively by measuring the time dependence of the ratio {I}p{/I}/{I}f{/I}^u2^ than by measuring the ratio {I}p{/I}/ ...

4. Challenges in the Development of Ventilation and Indoor Air Quality Standards: The Story of ASHRAE Standard 62
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 5/2/2016
Author: Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: Building ventilation has long been recognized for its role in occupant health, comfort and productivity, with some of the first recommendations on building ventilation rates published in the 19th century. These recommendations were transformed into m ...
