21. Sensitivity Analysis of Installation Faults on Heat Pump Performance
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1848
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 10/8/2014
Authors: Piotr A Domanski, Hugh Henderson, William V Payne
Abstract: Numerous studies and surveys indicated that typically-installed HVAC equipment operates inefficiently and wastes considerable energy due to different installation errors (faults), e.g., improper refrigerant charge, incorrect airflow, oversized eq ...

22. A Proposed Interim Check for Field Testing a Laser Tracker‰s 3-D Length Measurement Capability Using a Calibrated Scale Bar as a Reference Artifact
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 8016
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 10/1/2014
Authors: Vincent D Lee, Christopher J Blackburn, Balasubramanian Muralikrishnan, Daniel S Sawyer, Mark Meuret, Aaron Hudlemeyer
Abstract: This paper describes a proposed interim check for field testing a laser tracker‰s 3-D length measurement capability using a calibrated scale bar as a reference artifact. The tests described here are constructed to be sensitive to uncompensated error ...

23. A pilot interlaboratory comparison of protocols that simulate aging of nanocomposites and detect released fragments
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 10/1/2014
Authors: Wendel Wohlleben, Deborah L Stanley, Justin M Gorham, Li Piin Sung, Tinh Nguyen
Abstract: The safe use of nanocomposites depends, in part, on a good understanding of the fate of nanofillers throughout the nanocomposite,s lifecycle. Various modifications of ISO weathering protocols have been proposed to assess what is released and at which ...
