4. A Collection of Homes to Represent the U.S. Housing Stock
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7330
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 8/1/2008
Authors: Andrew Keith Persily, Amy Musser, Dennis D Leber
Abstract: In order to allow nationwide analysis of ventilation and indoor air quality issues in residential buildings, a set of homes has been defined to represent the housing stock of the United States. This collection of dwellings is based on two residential ...

5. A Comparative Study of Estimating Particle Resuspension Rate using a Consistent Test Mechanism
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 8/30/2011
Authors: Yilin Tian, Kyung Sul, Cynthia H. Reed, Dennis D Leber, Andrea Ferro
Abstract: Human walking influences indoor air quality by resuspending dust particles that have deposited on the floor. Previous research shows that particle resuspension rates vary over several orders of magnitude because of several influencing factors, such a ...

6. A Differential Form of the Kramers-Kronig Relation for Determining a Lorentz-Type of Refractive Index
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 7/22/2015
Authors: Sung Kim, David R Novotny, Joshua A Gordon, Jeffrey R Guerrieri
Abstract: The integral forms of the Kramers-Kronig (KK) relations that relate the real and imaginary parts, n' and n", of a refractive index require the integral to be conducted over the full spectrum. In this paper, we derive a differential form of the KK rel ...

7. A Graphical Approach to Evaluating High-Performing Buildings:Indoor Air Quality, Energy, Water, and Waste
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 2/20/2014
Authors: Kevin Yale Teichman, Steven J Emmerich, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: In this paper, we describe and demonstrate a graphical approach to illustrating the performance of high-performing buildings. Our approach enables building designers, owners, operators, and occupants to evaluate the performance of a building as desig ...
