61. Ventilation Measurements in IAQ Studies: Problems and Opportunities
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 8/30/2011
Authors: Andrew Keith Persily, Hal Levin
Abstract: Building and space ventilation rates are primary determinants of indoor pollutant levels and occupant exposures, and the impacts of ventilation on health and comfort have long been recognized in ventilation standards and regulations. Despite the im ...

62. Alternative Cooling Technology Options
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 8/21/2011
Authors: J Steven Brown, Piotr A Domanski
Abstract: This paper considers the alternative cooling technologies studied by Fisher et al. (1994) and assesses their current potential to compete with or to replace vapor compression refrigeration technology for space cooling and near-room temperature refrig ...

63. IMPACT OF CLASSICAL ASSUMPTIONS IN MODELLING A MICROCHANNEL GAS COOLER
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 7/5/2011
Authors: Santiago Martinez-Ballester, Jose M. Corberan, Jose Gonzalvez-Macia, Piotr A Domanski
Abstract: Most of the current air-to-refrigerant heat exchanger models use the classic ε-NTU approach. These models do not account for 2D longitudinal heat conduction in the tube and the longitudinal heat conduction in the fin. These models, also do not ...

64. A Computational and Experimental Investigation of Thermal Desorption and Vapor Sampling in an Explosive Trace Detector
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 6/30/2011
Authors: Matthew E Staymates, Wayne Smith, Eric S Windsor
Abstract: Swipe-based explosive trace detectors rely on thermal desorption to vaporize explosive particles collected on a swipe. The vaporized material is carried by air flows from the desorption unit to the inlet of the chemical analyzer, typically an ion mo ...

65. Bilateral Comparison Confirms NIM‰s and NIST‰s Gas Flow Capabilities
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 10/15/2010
Authors: Aaron N Johnson, CHUNHUI LI
Abstract: The bilateral comparison between NIM and NIST for gas flow was conducted from June 2008 to October 2009. Two critical flow venturis (CFVs) with nominal throat diameters of 10 mm and 20 mm, respectively, were selected as transfer standards. The CFVs w ...

66. 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 ...

67. Phases of a 2D Bose Gas in an Optical Lattice
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 9/9/2010
Authors: Karina K. Jimenez Garcia, Yu-Ju Lin, James V Porto, Ian B Spielman
Abstract: Ultra-cold atoms in optical lattices realize essential models in condensed matter physics. Like with most experiments with ultra-cold atoms, our Rubidium-87 Bose Einstein condensate is confined in a harmonic trapping potential that persists even ...

68. 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 ...

69. 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 ...

70. 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 ...
