22. Bilateral Comparison Confirms NIM‰s and NIST‰s Gas Flow Capabilities
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 10/15/2010
Authors: Aaron N Johnson, CHUNHUI LI
Abstract: The bilateral comparison between NIM and NIST for gas flow was conducted from June 2008 to October 2009. Two critical flow venturis (CFVs) with nominal throat diameters of 10 mm and 20 mm, respectively, were selected as transfer standards. The CFVs w ...

23. Blow-Down Tests Confirm Accurate Critical Flow Venturi Measurements During Transients
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 8/14/2009
Author: John D Wright
Abstract: Critical flow venturis (CFVs) can be used to measure flow under transient pressure, temperature, and flow conditions with k=2 uncertainties of 0.4 % or less. Blow-down tests transferred 630 g of nitrogen during a 100 s interval from an unregulated cy ...

27. CYCLE_D: NIST Vapor Compression Cycle Design Program Version 4.0 Users' Guide
Series: OTHER
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 6/23/2009
Authors: J S Brown, Piotr A Domanski, Eric W Lemmon
Abstract: The CYCLE_D package simulates vapor compression refrigeration cycles that use pure refrigerants or mixtures of refrigerants. The model can simulate a basic subcritical or transcritical refrigeration cycle, both with or without a liquid-line/suction-l ...
