31. 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 ...

32. 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 ...

33. 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 ...

34. Coupling of Whole-Building Energy, Airflow and Contaminant Transport Models (EnergyPlus and CONTAM) Using Co-Simulation
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 2/4/2016
Authors: William S Dols, Steven J Emmerich, Brian J Polidoro
Abstract: Building modelers need simulation tools capable of simultaneously considering building energy use, airflow and indoor air quality (IAQ) to design and evaluate the ability of buildings and their systems to meet today‰s demanding energy efficiency and ...

35. Detecting leaks in gas-filled pressure vessels using acoustic resonances
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 5/6/2016
Authors: Keith A Gillis, Michael R Moldover, James B. Mehl
Abstract: We demonstrate that a leak from a large, unthermostatted pressure vessel into ambient air can be detected an order of magnitude more effectively by measuring the time dependence of the ratio {I}p{/I}/{I}f{/I}^u2^ than by measuring the ratio {I}p{/I}/ ...

36. 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 ...

37. 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 ...

38. 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 ...

39. 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 ...
