21. Review of alternative cooling technologies
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 12/18/2013
Authors: S J Brown, Piotr A Domanski
Abstract: This paper considers the alternative cooling technologies studied by Fisher et al. (1994) and assesses their current performance and market potential in reference to vapor compression technology. First, a taxonomy of cooling technologies based on th ...

22. Constant pressure primary flow standard for gas flows from 0.01 cm^u3^/min to 100 cm^u3^/min (10^u-8^ mol/s to 10^u-5^ mol/s)
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 12/17/2013
Authors: Robert F Berg, Gooding Timothy, Robert Edward Vest
Abstract: We describe a flow meter for gas flows in the range from 0.01 sccm to 100 sccm with a relative standard uncertainty of 0.03 % at 1 sccm. (1 sccm ≈ 1 cm3/min of an ideal gas at 101325 Pa and 0 C ≈ 0.7 mol/s.) The flow meter calibrates a se ...

23. ,WeighingŠ a Gas With Microwave and Acoustic Resonances
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 12/9/2013
Authors: Keith A Gillis, James B. Mehl, James W Schmidt, Michael R Moldover
Abstract: With calibrations of large flow meters in mind, we established the feasibility of determining the mass {I}M{/I}of argon gas contained within a 0.3 m^u3^ commercially manufactured pressure vessel (,tankŠ) with a relative uncertainty of {I}u{/I}^dr^({I ...

24. Application of a Natural Ventilation System Design Tool To A School Building
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 11/8/2013
Authors: Steven J Emmerich, William S Dols, Brian J Polidoro
Abstract: A software tool to aid in the design of natural ventilation systems has recently been udpated. This update implements a general method for sizing of natural ventilation components, which allows direct consideration of stack and wind-driven airflow. T ...

25. A THERMODYNAMIC ANALYSIS OF REFRIGERANTS: PERFORMANCE LIMITS OF THE VAPOR COMPRESSION CYCLE
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 10/24/2013
Authors: Piotr A Domanski, J S Brown, Janusz Wojtusiak, Mark O McLinden
Abstract: This paper explores the thermodynamic performance limits of the vapor compression cycle. In particular, we apply evolutionary algorithms to explore the performance of thousands of hypothetical refrigerants defined by their thermodynamic parameter ...

26. IMPROVEMENTS TO NIST'S AIR SPEED CALIBRATION SERVICE
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 9/24/2013
Authors: Iosif I Shinder, Christopher J. Crowley, Bernard J Filla, Michael R Moldover
Abstract: We discuss five significant improvements to the Air Speed Calibration Service conducted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST): 1. Reduced-uncertainty calibrations of the secondary standard [Laser Doppler Anemometer, (LDA)] us ...

27. Desorption Electro-Flow Focusing Ionization of Explosives and Narcotics for Ambient Pressure Mass
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 8/6/2013
Authors: Thomas P Forbes, Timothy M Brewer, John G Gillen
Abstract: Desorption electro-flow focusing ionization (DEFFI), a desorption-based ambient ion source, was developed and evaluated as a possible source for field deployable ambient pressure mass spectrometry (APMS). DEFFI, based on an electro-flow focusing syst ...

29. Measurement and Prediction of Vapor-Space Condensation of Refrigerants on Trapezoidal-Finned and Turbo-C Geometries
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 6/3/2013
Authors: Mark A Kedzierski, J S Brown, Matt Carr
Abstract: This paper reports vapor-space condensation heat transfer measurements for R123, R134a, and R245fa on two passively enhanced vertical surfaces and on a vertical smooth plate. The two enhanced surfaces were the integral trapezoidal-fin and the Turbo- ...
