31. 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 ...

32. 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 ...

33. 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 ...

34. 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 ...

35. 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 ...

36. Energy Performance Sensitivity of a Net-Zero Energy Home to Design and Use Specifications
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 2/2/2015
Authors: Joshua D Kneifel, William M Healy, James J Filliben, Matthew T Boyd
http://www.nist.gov/manuscript-publication-search.cfm?pub_id=916154

37. Energy and Economic Implications of Solar Photovoltaic Performance Degradation
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1203
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 1/6/2016
Authors: Joshua D Kneifel, David Harry Webb, Eric G O\'Rear

38. 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 ...

39. 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 ...

40. Field Measurement of Ventilation Rates
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 3/18/2015
Author: Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: Ventilation rates have significant impacts on building energy use and indoor contaminant concentrations, making them key parameters in evaluating building performance. Ventilation rates have been measured in buildings for many decades and there are m ...
