21. Building Industry Reporting and Design for Sustainability (BIRDS) Tutorial for New Residential Database
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: NIST TN 1880
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 6/3/2015
Authors: Joshua D Kneifel, Priya D Lavappa

22. 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 ...

23. CONTAM To EnergyPlus Infiltration Features of the CONTAM Results Export Tool
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1873
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 3/30/2015
Authors: Brian J Polidoro, Lisa C Ng, William S Dols, Steven J Emmerich, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: As building envelope performance and HVAC equipment efficiencies continue to be improved to reduce building energy use, a greater percentage of the total energy loss of a building can occur through envelope leakage. Although the energy impacts of ...

24. CYCLE_D: NIST Vapor Compression Cycle Design Program Version 5.0
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 5/1/2012
Authors: J S Brown, Piotr A Domanski, Eric W Lemmon

25. Carbon Monoxide Exposure from Portable Generators
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 10/28/2014
Authors: Steven J Emmerich, Andrew Keith Persily, Liangzhu Wang
Abstract: Serious concerns exist about the hazard of acute residential carbon monoxide (CO) exposures from portable gasoline-powered generators, which can result in death or serious adverse health effects. As of April 23, 2013 and as shown in Figure 1, the U.S ...

26. Commissioning Cost-Benefit and Persistence of Savings: A Report on Cost-Effective Commissioning of Existing and Low Energy Buildings
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1727
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 9/17/2012
Authors: Hannah Friedman, Marti Frank, David Claridge, Kristin Heinemeier, Kim Crossman, Eliot Crowe, Cory Toole, Natascha Sylvia Milesi-Ferretti, Daniel Choniere
Abstract: Commissioning of new and existing buildings has been shown to reduce energy usage and can also produce non-energy related benefits such as improved occupant comfort. When compared with other initiatives such as installation of high efficiency equ ...

27. Comparison of Five Natural Gas Equations of State Used for Flow and Energy Measurement
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 8/14/2009
Authors: Aaron N Johnson, William Johansen
Abstract: Measurements of the flow and the energy content of natural gas rely on equations of state to compute four thermodynamic properties: 1) compressibility factor; 2) critical flow factor; 3) speed of sound; and 4)isentropic exponent. We compare these com ...

28. Constant pressure primary flow standard for gas flows from 0.01 cm^u3^/min to 100 cm^u3^/min (10^u-8^ mol/s to 10^u-5^ mol/s)
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 12/17/2013
Authors: Robert F Berg, Gooding Timothy, Robert Edward Vest
Abstract: We describe a flow meter for gas flows in the range from 0.01 sccm to 100 sccm with a relative standard uncertainty of 0.03 % at 1 sccm. (1 sccm ≈ 1 cm3/min of an ideal gas at 101325 Pa and 0 C ≈ 0.7 mol/s.) The flow meter calibrates a se ...

29. Control of Flow Direction in Microfluidic Devices with Polyelectrolyte Multilayers
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 12/1/2000
Authors: S L. Barker, David J Ross, Michael J Tarlov, Michael Gaitan, Laurie E Locascio
Abstract: Electroosmotic flow (EOF) is commonly utilized in microfluidics. Because the direction of the EOF can be determined by the substrate surface charge, control of the surface chemical state offers the potential, in addition to voltage control, to direct ...

30. Dynamic Gravitational Standard for Liquid Flow: Model and Measurements
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 8/14/2009
Authors: Iosif I Shinder, Michael R Moldover
Abstract: We report progress in testing a dynamic gravimetric standard using both steady and unsteady water flows. For steady flows in the range 10 kg/s to 60 kg/s, the difference between the dynamic standard and NIST s static primary standard was 0.015 % wit ...
