61. The Calculation of Natural Gas Viscosity
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 8/14/2009
Authors: Aaron N Johnson, William Johansen
Abstract: The calculation of natural gas viscosity has been implemented many different ways including the use of constants. Different methods of calculating natural gas viscosity may produce values with differences as large as 50%. Increasing natural gas price ...

62. High Definition Flow
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 8/1/2009
Authors: John D Wright, Michael R Moldover
Abstract: From pharmaceutical production to the natural gas market, exact flow measurements are critical. Here's how NIST helps keep us all on the same page.

63. The Virtual Cybernetic Building Testbed-A Building Emulator
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 7/16/2009
Authors: Steven T Bushby, Michael A Galler, Natascha Sylvia Milesi-Ferretti, Cheol D. Park
Abstract: Building emulators couple computer simulations to real control hardware, creating a useful tool for studying building control system performance. The National Institute of Standards and Technology's Virtual Cybernetic Building Testbed (VCBT) is a ...

64. A Comparison of Predicted to Measured Photovoltaic Module Performance
Report Number: 7335
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 3/1/2009
Authors: Arthur Hunter Fanney, Brian P Dougherty, Mark W. (Mark W.) Davis
Abstract: Computer simulation models to accurately predict the electrical performance of photovoltaic modules are essential. Without such models, potential purchasers of photovoltaic systems have insufficient information to judge the relative merits and cost e ...

65. Striped Domains at the Pentacene:C^d60^ Interface
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 1/12/2009
Authors: Dan B. Dougherty, W Jin, J Cullen, J Reutt-Robey, Steven W Robey
Abstract: STM observations of the initial growth stages of the first layer of pentacene on a monolayer film of C60 on Ag(111) are presented. Pentacene films nucleate and grow with molecules standing up at the Pentacene:C60 interface similar to the well known ...

66. Variable Temperature Scanning Tunneling Microscopy of Pentacene Monolayer and Bilayer Phases on Ag(111)
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 12/25/2008
Authors: Dan B. Dougherty, Jim Wei, William Cullen, Janice Reutt-Robey, Steven W Robey
Abstract: Pentacene deposited onto a Ag(111) surface at 300 K is studied using scanning tunneling microscopy at temperatures of 300 K and 50 K.  At 300 K, ordered pentacene structures nucleate at Ag step edges (<i>Phys. Rev. B</i>  <b>2005 ...

67. Standards Development for Gas Phase Air Cleaning Equipment in Buildings
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7525
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 11/3/2008
Authors: Andrew Keith Persily, Cynthia H. Reed, Stephanie S Watson, Nicos Martys, Edward Joseph Garboczi, Heather Davis
Abstract: Concerns about building security have resulted in increasing interest in gas phase air cleaning (GPAC) and the need for standard methods to determine the effectiveness of these systems. Similarly, the ability to predict their installed performance, ...

68. Using the BACnet Communications DLL v1.0
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1607
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 9/29/2008
Author: Michael A Galler
Abstract: The BACnet standard [1] defines a communication protocol for information exchange between components of a distributed building automation and control system. The BACnet Communications Dynamically Linked Library (DLL) enables researchers to implement ...

69. Natural Gas Flow Calibration Service
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 8/1/2008
Author: Aaron N Johnson
Abstract: This document describes NIST's high pressure natural gas flow calibration service (NGFCS). Flow calibrations are conducted offsite at the Colorado Experimental Engineering Station Incorporated (CEESI) in Garner, Iowa. A parallel array of nine tur ...

70. Simulation of the Impact of Commercial Building Envelope Airtightness on Building Energy Utilization
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 12/14/2007
Authors: Steven J Emmerich, Timothy P. McDowell, Wagdy Anis
Abstract: This paper presents a simulation study of the energy impact and cost-effectiveness of improving envelope airtightness in low-rise US commercial buildings. Despite common assumptions, measurements have shown that typical US commercial buildings are no ...
