31. 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 ...

33. 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 ...

34. 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 ...

36. 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 ...

37. 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 ...

38. High Definition Flow
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 8/1/2009
Authors: John D Wright, Michael R Moldover
Abstract: From pharmaceutical production to the natural gas market, exact flow measurements are critical. Here's how NIST helps keep us all on the same page.

40. IAQ and Energy Impacts of Ventilation and Source Control in a Big Box Retail Building
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 6/10/2015
Authors: Lisa C Ng, Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: Heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems in buildings are designed to provide thermally comfortable conditions and to maintain acceptable indoor air quality (IAQ). At the same time, the operating costs of HVAC systems are often a lar ...
