1. Absorptive Limiter for Frequency Selective Circuits
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 6/1/2014
Authors: Juan C. Collado Gomez, Eduard Rocas, James C Booth, Jordi Mateu, J. M. O'Callaghan, J. Verdu, A. Hueltes
Abstract: This paper describes a novel absorptive limiter for frequency selective circuits. The proposed circuit allows the design of absorptive limiters based on a bi-state phase shifter, which is appropriate for integration into channelizing devices, ...

4. Effectiveness of an in-duct electrostatic precipitator in nanoparticle removal with consideration of ozone emissions
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 5/15/2014
Authors: Dong H. Rim, Dustin G Poppendieck, Lance L. Wallace, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: Human exposure to ultrafine particles (UFP, < 100 nm) has been shown to have adverse health effects such as respiratory impacts and cardiovascular mortality. UFP concentrations can be elevated in occupied buildings due to prevalence of UFP sources wi ...

8. An improved method of modeling infiltration in commercial building energy models
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1829
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 4/28/2014
Authors: Lisa C Ng, Steven J Emmerich, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: As various strategies for improving building envelope and HVAC equipment efficiencies are increasingly used to reduce building energy use, a greater percentage of energy loss can occur through building envelope leakage. Although the energy impacts of ...
