111. Sensitivity Analysis of Installation Faults on Heat Pump Performance
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1848
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 10/8/2014
Authors: Piotr A Domanski, Hugh Henderson, William V Payne
Abstract: Numerous studies and surveys indicated that typically-installed HVAC equipment operates inefficiently and wastes considerable energy due to different installation errors (faults), e.g., improper refrigerant charge, incorrect airflow, oversized eq ...

112. 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 ...

113. Site Specific X-Ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy Using X-Ray Standing Waves
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 5/26/2005
Author: Joseph C Woicik
Abstract: The x-ray standing wave technique is an experimental method that can accurately determine the precise crystallographic positions of atoms within a crystalline unit cell. As we have seen in preceding chapters of this book, this unique ability arises ...

114. Soft X-ray Characterization Technique for Li Batteries under Operating Conditions
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 9/1/2009
Authors: Daniel A Fischer, Cole Petersburg, Robert Daniel, Cherno Jaye, Faisal Alamgir
Abstract: O K edge and Co L edge near edge X-ray absorption fine structure (NEXAFS) was used to examine the cathode of an intact solid-state lithium ion battery. The novel technique allowed for the simultaneous acquisition of partial electron yield and fluores ...

115. 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, ...

116. Strategies to Achieve Net-Zero Energy Homes: A Framework for Future Guidelines Workshop Summary Report
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1140
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 4/5/2013
Author: Nancy A McNabb
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Measurement Science Roadmap for Net-Zero Energy Buildings Workshop Report (NIST TN 1660 ‹ March 2010) identified a number of broad challenges to achieving NZE high-performance green buildi ...

117. 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 ...

118. Substrate-dependent interface composition and charge transport in films for organic photovoltaics
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 6/9/2009
Authors: David Germack, Calvin Chan, Behrang H Hamadani, Lee J Richter, Daniel A Fischer, David J Gundlach, Dean M DeLongchamp
Abstract: The buried interface composition of polymer-fullerene blends is found by near edge X ray absorption fine structure (NEXAFS) spectroscopy to depend on the surface energy of the substrate upon which they are cast. The interface composition determines ...

119. Summary Article: IEA HPP Annex 36, Quality Installation/Quality Maintanace Sensitivity Studies
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 2/25/2015
Authors: Glenn Hourahan, Piotr A Domanski, Van Baxter
Abstract: It is widely recognized that residential and commercial heat pump equipment experience significant ,in-fieldŠ performance loss (i.e., capacity and efficiency) depending on how the components are sized, matched, installed, and subsequently field-m ...
