31. Effect of Al2O3 Nanolubricant on R134a Pool Boiling Heat Transfer
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 9/8/2012
Author: Mark A Kedzierski
Abstract: This paper quantifies the influence of Al2O3 nanoparticles on the pool boiling performance of R134a/polyolester mixtures on a roughened, horizontal, flat surface. Nanofluids are liquids that contain dispersed nano-size particles. A lubricant based ...

32. Effect of Heat Pump Commissioning Faults on Energy Use in a Slab-on-Grade Residential House
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 7/8/2015
Authors: Piotr A Domanski, Hugh Henderson, William V Payne
Abstract: This study seeks to develop an understanding of the effect of these common faults on the energy consumption of a heat pump installed in a single-family, slab-on-grade residential house. Through annual simulations of the house/heat pump system, t ...

33. Elucidating the Effects of Adsorbent Flexibility on Fluid Adsorption Using Simple Models and Flat-Histogram Sampling Methods
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 6/24/2014
Authors: Vincent K Shen, Daniel W Siderius
Abstract: Using flat-histogram Monte Carlo methods, we investigate the adsorptive behavior of the square-well fluid in two simple slit-pore- like models intended to capture fundamental characteristics of flexible adsorbent materials. The models require thermo ...

35. Evolutionary Computation Approach to Heat Exchanger Design
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 6/26/2010
Authors: David A Yashar, Janusz Wojusiak, Kenneth Kaufman, Piotr A Domanski
Abstract: The efficiency of a vapor compression system is strongly influenced by the performance of the finned-tube heat exchangers it employs. Heat exchanger performance is strongly influenced by the refrigerant circuitry, i.e., the connection sequence of th ...

36. Feasibility of an Accurate Dynamic Standard for Water Flow
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 6/1/2010
Authors: Iosif I Shinder, Michael R Moldover
Abstract: We used NIST's primary water flow standard to study the feasibility of accurately determining mass flow rates {I}m{/I}^ddot^ of water "dynamically," that is from the time derivative of the weight {I}W{/I} of the collection tank: {I}m{/I ...

38. Gas Flowmeter Calibrations with the 34 L and 677 L PVTt Standards
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 6/23/2004
Authors: John D Wright, Aaron N Johnson, Michael R Moldover, Gina M Kline
Abstract: This document provides a description of the 34 L and 677 L pressure, volume, temperature, and time (PVTt) primary gas flow standards operated by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Fluid Flow Group. These facilities are used to ...

39. Glassy Carbon as an Absolute Intensity Calibration Standard for Small Angle Scattering
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 8/19/2009
Authors: Andrew John Allen, Jan Ilavsky, Fan Zhang, Gabrielle G Long, Pete R. Jemian
Abstract: Absolute calibration of small-angle scattering (SAS) intensity data (in units of differential cross-section per unit sample volume per unit solid angle) is essential for many important aspects of quantitative SAS analysis, such as obtaining the numbe ...
