91. Remotely Accessed Photovoltaic Power Experiment
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 3/21/2006
Authors: W J Hutzel, William M Healy
Abstract: A solar energy experiment that estimates the number of photovoltaic panels needed to provide supplemental power for a typical residence is described. The project is unique because it uses freely available on-line resources for collecting and analyzi ...

92. Relaxation Effects in Small Critical Nozzles
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 1/1/2006
Authors: Aaron N Johnson, C L Merkle, Michael R Moldover, John D Wright
Abstract: We computed the flow of four gases (He, N^d2^, CO^d2^, and SF^d^6) through a critical nozzle by augmenting traditional computational fluid dynamics (CFD) with a rate equation that accounts for {tau}^drelax^, a species-dependent relaxation time that c ...

95. Site Specific X-Ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy Using X-Ray Standing Waves
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 5/26/2005
Author: Joseph C Woicik
Abstract: The x-ray standing wave technique is an experimental method that can accurately determine the precise crystallographic positions of atoms within a crystalline unit cell. As we have seen in preceding chapters of this book, this unique ability arises ...

97. Ventilation Design and Performance in U.S. Office Buildings
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 4/30/2005
Authors: Andrew Keith Persily, J Gorfain
Abstract: Building ventilation is a primary determinant of indoor air quality (IAQ) as it impacts contaminant concentrations and occupant comfort in terms of the perception of odor and irritation. However, relatively few measurements of office building ventila ...
