31. 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 ...

32. Diffusion-controlled Reference Material for VOC Emissions Testing:International Inter-laboratory Study
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 5/12/2014
Authors: Cynthia H. Reed, Zhe Liu, Steve Cox, Dennis D Leber, Daniel Victor Samarov, John Little
Abstract: The measurement of volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions from building products and materials by manufacturers and testing laboratories, and the use of the test results for labeling programs, continues to expand. One issue that hinders chamber pr ...

33. Diffusion-controlled Reference Material for VOC Emissions Testing: Effect of Temperature and Humidity
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 5/1/2014
Authors: Zhe Liu, Cynthia H. Reed, Steven Cox, John Little
Abstract: To improve the reliability and accuracy of chamber tests for measuring emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from interior materials, Virginia Tech (VT) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have created a program to ...

34. IAQ Specifications for a Netzero Energy Research Home
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 5/1/2014
Authors: Andrew Keith Persily, Lisa C Ng
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) recently constructed the Net Zero Energy Research Test Facility (NZERTF) to demonstrate a range of technologies in support of achieving netzero or near zero residential buildings (1). The ener ...

35. 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 ...

36. Response to Comments on the National Institute of Standards and Technology Investigation of the 2001 World Trade Center Fires
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 4/15/2014
Authors: Richard George Gann, Anthony P Hamins, Therese P McAllister, Kevin B McGrattan, William M Pitts, Kuldeep R Prasad
Abstract: The editor of a special issue of Fire Technology invited the NIST authors to address the NIST Investigation of the WTC disaster and associated practice and research progress in the 10 years since then. The three published papers are a summary of th ...

37. A Quantitative Study of Nanoparticle Release from Nanocoatings Exposed to UV Radiation
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 4/7/2014
Authors: Li Piin Sung, Deborah L Stanley, Justin M Gorham, Savelas A Rabb, Xiaohong Gu, Lee Lijian Yu, Tinh Nguyen
Abstract: Nanoparticles are increasingly used in polymer coatings (i.e., nanocoatings) to improve multiple properties of traditional coatings such as mechanical, electrical, gas barrier, and UV resistance. These high performance nanocoatings are often used in ...

38. Evaluating Building Ventilation Strategies Using Newly-Developed TRNSYS/CONTAM Simulation Capabilities
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 4/3/2014
Authors: William S Dols, Steven J Emmerich, Brian J Polidoro
Abstract: Building energy analysis tools are available in many forms that provide the ability to address a broad spectrum of energy-related issues in various combinations. Often these tools operate in isolation from one another, making it difficult to evaluate ...

39. Robustness Assessment of RC Frame Buildings under Column Loss Scenarios
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 4/3/2014
Authors: Yihai Bao, Joseph A Main, Hai Sang Lew, Fahim Sadek
Abstract: A computational assessment of the robustness of reinforced concrete (RC) building structures under column loss scenarios is presented. A reduced-order modeling approach is presented for three-dimensional RC framing systems, including the floor slab, ...

40. Areas of the U.S. wildland‹urban interface threatened by wildfire during the 2001‹2010 decade
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 4/1/2014
Authors: Douglas S Thomas, David T Butry
Abstract: The wildland‹urban interface (WUI) is defined in terms of housing density and proximity to wildlands, yet its relevance seems to be only in conjunction with wildland fire threats. The objective of this paper is to (1) identify the WUI areas threatene ...
