2. Evaluating the Initial Field Performance of HVAC-Cx for Air Handling Units
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1924
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 8/17/2016
Authors: Natascha Sylvia Milesi-Ferretti, Michael A Galler, Steven T Bushby
Abstract: Automated commissioning tools facilitate the ongoing commissioning process to improve occupant comfort, ensure the persistence of correct system operation, and reduce energy consumption. These tools decrease the time and the skill level required ...

8. 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}/ ...
