81. 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 ...

82. Measurement of Air-Velocity Profiles for Finned-Tube Heat Exchangers Using Particle Image Velocimetry
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 7/14/2008
Authors: David A Yashar, Piotr A Domanski, Hong H. Cho
Abstract: The performance of a finned tube heat exchanger is strongly affected by the distribution of the air that passes through it.  The air velocity distribution for finned-tube heat exchangers is not very well documented today because it is difficult ...

83. Micro Effects for Single Phase Pressure Drop In Microchannels
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 3/3/2008
Authors: Dong H. Han, Mark A Kedzierski
Abstract: This paper investigates the significance of several micro-effects that have been proposed to influence pressure drop measurements in microchannels. Pressure drop measurements were made for liquid flow within tubular microchannels nominally ranging i ...

84. 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 ...

85. Application of an Evolution Program for Refrigerant Circuitry Optimization
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 12/7/2007
Authors: Piotr A Domanski, David A Yashar
Abstract: Increased concerns about climate change have emphasized the importance of air-conditioning and refrigeration systems with a high coefficient of performance (COP). The effectiveness of heat exchangers significantly influences the vapor-compression sy ...

86. A Comparison of Predicted to Measured Photovoltaic Module Performance
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 6/27/2007
Authors: Arthur Hunter Fanney, Brian P Dougherty, 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 ...

87. Anomalous Behavior of Teflon-Based Helium Permeation Flow Standards
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 6/1/2007
Authors: Patrick J Abbott, Justin H Chow
Abstract: Helium leak testing is a vital step in assuring product reliability for anything that must be packaged in a sealed container. Examples abound from blister packaging for pharmaceuticals to aluminum wheel rims for automobiles. In order to quantify de ...

88. Interrogation of 'Surface', 'Skin' and 'Core' Orientation in Thermotropic Liquid-Crystalline Copolyester Moldings by Near-Edge X-Ray Absorption Fine Structure and Wide-Angle X-Ray Scattering
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 2/26/2007
Authors: S Rendon, Robert A Bubeck, L S Thomas, W R Burghardt, A Hexemer, Daniel A Fischer
Abstract: Injection molding of thermotropic liquid-crystalline polymers (TLCPs) can result in molded articles the exhibit complex orientation states that vary considerably as a function of depth in the part. Skin-core morphologies are often observed in TLCP ...

89. Results from Field Testing of Embedded Air Handling Unit and Variable Air Volume Box Fault Detection Tools
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Report Number: 7365
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 10/30/2006
Author: J Schein
Abstract: Fault detection and diagnostic (FDD) methods that can detect common mechanical faults and control errors in air-handling units (AHUs) and variable-air-volume (VAV) boxes were developed and commercialized. The tools are sufficiently simple that they c ...

90. CONTAM 2.4 User Guide and Program Documentation
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7251
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 10/3/2006
Authors: George Walton, William S Dols
Abstract: This manual describes the computer program CONTAM version 2.3 developed by NIST. CONTAM is a multizone indoor air quality and ventilation analysis program designed to help you determine: airflows and pressures infiltration, exfiltration, and room-t ...
