73. 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 ...

74. 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 ...

77. Recommendations for Application of CO^d2^-Based Demand Controlled Ventilation Including Proposed Guidance for ASHRAE Standard 62 and California's Title 24
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 9/29/2003
Authors: Andrew Keith Persily, Jim Braun, Steven J Emmerich, Kevin Mercer, Tom Lawerence
Abstract: Carbon dioxide (CO2) based demand controlled ventilation (DCV) has been proposed and implemented for many years as a strategy for increasing energy efficiency by providing outdoor air ventilation rates based on actual occupancy rather than design occ ...

80. Laminar Flow of Four Gases Through a Helical Rectangular Duct
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 2/1/2001
Authors: Robert F Berg, S A Tison
Abstract: We report measurements and a model of gas flow through a helical duct of rectangular cross section. The measurements on helium, nitrogen, argon, and sulfur hexafluoride yielded molar flow rates from observations of the rate of rise of pressure in a ...
