Noise?insulation requirements for multi?family dwellings  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Noise insulation standards are part of the California Administrative Code (Title 25 Section 1092). These standards apply to all new multi?family dwelling units such as hotels apartments duplexes townhouses and condominium units. Detached single?family dwellings are specifically excluded. The standards establish minimum requirements for the isolation of interior spaces from exterior noise and set minimum ratings for noise insulation of partitions between dwelling units. A community noise equivalent level (CNEL) of 45 dB is set as the maximum for intrusive noise from exterior sources such as rail or road traffic or aircraft operations. American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) testing procedures for party wall and floor/ceiling system sound transmission provide the basis for setting minimum acceptable performance for separations between units. As a consultant to builders planners and architects the site planning and design of residential projects have been examined and field evaluations have been performed on completed projects. Building designs and the selection of suitable building elements (wall construction composites window assemblies vent configurations etc.) which assure compliance with the standards have been identified. The paper provides a brief description of the standards their enforcement pitfalls and an assessment of their impact on residential construction in California.

Challenges of Achieving 2012 IECC Air Sealing Requirements in Multifamily Dwellings  

SciTech Connect

?While previous versions of the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) have included provisions to improve the air tightness of dwellings, for the first time, the 2012 IECC mandates compliance verification through blower door testing. Simply completing the Air Barrier and Insulation Installation checklist through visual inspection is no longer sufficient by itself. In addition, the 2012 IECC mandates a significantly stricter air sealing requirement. In Climate Zones 3 through 8, air leakage may not exceed 3 ACH50, which is a significant reduction from the 2009 IECC requirement of 7 ACH50. This requirement is for all residential buildings, which includes low-rise multifamily dwellings. While this air leakage rate requirement is an important component to achieving an efficient building thermal envelope, currently, the code language doesn't explicitly address differences between single family and multifamily applications. In addition, the 2012 IECC does not provide an option to sample dwellings for larger multifamily buildings, so compliance would have to be verified on every unit. With compliance with the 2012 IECC air leakage requirements on the horizon, several of CARB's multifamily builder partners are evaluating how best to comply with this requirement. Builders are not sure whether it is more practical or beneficial to simply pay for guarded testing or to revise their air sealing strategies to improve compartmentalization to comply with code requirements based on unguarded blower door testing. This report summarizes CARB's research that was conducted to assess the feasibility of meeting the 2012 IECC air leakage requirements in 3 multifamily buildings.

National impacts of the Weatherization Assistance Program in single-family and small multifamily dwellings  

SciTech Connect

Since 1976, the US Department of Energy (DOE) has operated one of the largest energy conservation programs in the nation -- the low-income Weatherization Assistance Program. The program strives to increase the energy efficiency of dwellings occupied by low-income persons in order to reduce their energy consumption, lower their fuel bills, increase the comfort of their homes, and safeguard their health. It targets vulnerable groups including the elderly, people with disabilities, and families with children. The most recent national evaluation of the impacts of the Program was completed in 1984 based on energy consumption data for households weatherized in 1981. DOE Program regulations and operations have changed substantially since then: new funding sources, management principles, diagnostic procedures, and weatherization technologies have been incorporated. Many of these new features have been studied in isolation or at a local level; however, no recent evaluation has assessed their combined, nationwide impacts to date or their potential for the future. In 1990, DOE initiated such an evaluation. This evaluation is comprised of three ``impact`` studies (the Single-Family Study, High-Density Multifamily Study, and Fuel-Oil Study) and two ``policy`` studies. Altogether, these five studies will provide a comprehensive national assessment of the Weatherization Assistance Program as it existed in the 1989 Program Year (PY 1989). This report presents the results of the first phase of the Single-Family Study. It evaluates the energy savings and cost effectiveness of the Program as it has been applied to the largest portion of its client base -- low-income households that occupy single-family dwellings, mobile homes, and small (2- to 4-unit) multifamily dwellings. It is based upon a representative national sample that covers the full range of conditions under which the program was implemented in PY 1989.

Improvement in impact insulation ratings of common floor/ceiling assemblies in multi?family dwellings with standard floor coverings  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Improvement in the field?rated impact insulation class [FIIC] was measured for several common floor/ceiling assemblies in existing multi?family buildings utilizing several standard grades of carpet pad and various vinyl products. Testing included determination of FIIC ratings with existing floor coverings and with other more effective floor coverings including ordinary cushioned vinyl thickly cushion?backed vinyl and vinyl products with fiber board and particle board underlayment. Test results indicate that a significant improvement in the FIIC ratings of existing vinyl covered floor/ceiling assemblies can be achieved by the superposition of an appropriate cushioned vinyl on top of the existing standard vinyl. The test results also indicate that a significant increase in FIIC ratings of existing carpeted floor/ceiling assemblies can be achieved by appropriate selection of new pad and carpet. Test data from measurements performed in accordance with ISO recommendation R140 are presented in the paper for several representative configurations.

Evaluation of Crawlspace Retrofits in Multifamily Buildings  

SciTech Connect

In 2011 and early 2012, Building Science Corporation (BSC) collaborated with Innova Services Corporation on a multifamily community unvented crawlspace retrofit project at Oakwood Gardens in Lansdale, Pennsylvania. BSC provided design consulting services and pre- and post-retrofit evaluation, testing, and data monitoring. The existing condition was a vented crawlspace with an uninsulated floor between the crawlspace and the dwelling units above. The crawlspace was therefore a critically weak link in the building enclosure and was ripe for improvement. Saving energy was the primary interest and goal, but the greatest challenge in this unvented crawlspace retrofit project was working through a crawlspace bulk water intrusion problem caused by inadequate site drainage, window well drainage, foundation wall drainage, and a rising water table during rainy periods. While the unvented crawlspace retrofit was effective in reducing heat loss, and the majority of the bulk water drainage problems had been resolved, the important finding was that some of the wood joists embedded in masonry pockets behind the brick veneer were showing signs of moisture damage.

Five case studies of multifamily weatherization programs  

SciTech Connect

The multifamily case studies that are the subject of this report were conducted to provide a better understanding of the approach taken by program operators in weatherizing large buildings. Because of significant variations in building construction and energy systems across the country, five states were selected based on their high level of multifamily weatherization. This report summarizes findings from case studies conducted by multifamily weatherization operations in five cities. The case studies were conducted between January and November 1994. Each of the case studies involved extensive interviews with the staff of weatherization subgrantees conducting multifamily weatherization, the inspection of 4 to 12 buildings weatherized between 1991 and 1993, and the analysis of savings and costs. The case studies focused on innovative techniques which appear to work well.

Description of the Weatherization Assistance Program in larger multifamily buildings for Program Year 1989  

SciTech Connect

The efforts of the US Department of Energy (DOE) Weatherization Assistance Program (the Program) in larger multifamily buildings were examined for Program Year 1989. The results show that about 20,000 dwellings in these multifamily buildings were served under the Program that year. This is 9% of the total number of units served nationally, while costs were 7% of total national costs. High levels of activity in larger multifamily buildings were reported for some States, with New York accounting for half of all the residences treated. Owner investment is an important strategy in New York for improving their efforts. A wide range of measures was installed, but the materials costs for the measures are dominated by the cost of windows (80% of the total for that year). Where the whole building was treated, $561 was invested per unit, while for partial-building work the total invested was $417. The energy savings and cost effectiveness of the Program were not estimated, because energy use and cost data adequate for developing such estimates could not be obtained.

Balancing Hydronic Systems in Multifamily Buildings  

SciTech Connect

In multifamily hydronic systems, temperature imbalance may be caused by undersized piping, improperly adjusted balancing valves, inefficient water temperature and flow levels, and owner/occupant interaction with the boilers, distribution and controls. The effects of imbalance include tenant discomfort, higher energy use intensity and inefficient building operation. This paper explores cost-effective distribution upgrades and balancing measures in multifamily hydronic systems, providing a resource to contractors, auditors, and building owners on best practices to improve tenant comfort and lower operating costs. The research was conducted by The Partnership for Advanced Residential Retrofit (PARR) in conjunction with Elevate Energy. The team surveyed existing knowledge on cost-effective retrofits for optimizing distribution in typical multifamily hydronic systems, with the aim of identifying common situations and solutions, and then conducted case studies on two Chicago area buildings with known balancing issues in order to quantify the extent of temperature imbalance. At one of these buildings a booster pump was installed on a loop to an underheated wing of the building. This study found that unit temperature in a multifamily hydronic building can vary as much as 61 degrees F, particularly if windows are opened or tenants use intermittent supplemental heating sources like oven ranges. Average temperature spread at the building as a result of this retrofit decreased from 22.1 degrees F to 15.5 degrees F.

Massachusetts multi-family passive solar program  

SciTech Connect

The Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy Resources (EOER), in cooperation with the US Department of Energy, the State Executive Office of Communities and Development, and Local Housing Authorities is putting passive solar and special energy conservation features into new multi-family housing for the elderly throughout the Commonwealth. The Multi-Family Passive Solar Program provides design and technical assistance to the housing agencies, project architects, and engineers, and uses funds from EOER's $25 million Energy Bond Program to pay for incremental conservation and solar costs. In October 1980, 17 projects including over 400 passive solar heated units received awards for design and construction totalling $1.5 million. Many of them are already under construction. The projects represent a wide range of building types (from suburban cottages to mid-rise elevator buildings) and structural systems (from light wood to steel to concrete frames), and respond to a variety of real world constraints which make them non-optimal. Solar systems include direct gain, Trombe walls, passive domestic water heating, and a variety of sunspace configurations, some using remote storage. Additional projects are now in design development, plans for monitoring are underway, and a case study book outlining our experience and recommendations for multi-family passive solar design is being drafted.

Mini-Split Heat Pumps Multifamily Retrofit Feasibility Study  

SciTech Connect

Mini-split heat pumps can provide space heating and cooling in many climates and are relatively affordable. These and other features make them potentially suitable for retrofitting into multifamily buildings in cold climates to replace electric resistance heating or other outmoded heating systems. This report investigates the suitability of mini-split heat pumps for multifamily retrofits. Various technical and regulatory barriers are discussed and modeling was performed to compare long-term costs of substituting mini-splits for a variety of other heating and cooling options. A number of utility programs have retrofit mini-splits in both single family and multifamily residences. Two such multifamily programs are discussed in detail.

Energy-efficient rehabilitation of multifamily buildings in the Midwest  

SciTech Connect

This report addresses the opportunities available to make multifamily housing more affordable by using energy efficiency practices in housing rehabilitation. Use of the energy conservation measures discussed in this report enables developers of multifamily housing to substantially reduce annual energy costs. The reduction in natural gas usage was found to be approximately 10 Btu per square foot per heating degree-day. The study focuses on a number of Chicago multifamily buildings. The buildings were examined to compare energy efficiency measures that are commonly found in multifamily building rehabilitation with the high-energy-efficiency (HE) techniques that are currently available to community developers but are often unused. The HE measures include R-43 insulation in attics, R-19 insulation in exterior walls, low-emissivity coatings on windows, air infiltration sealing, and HE heating systems. The report describes the HE features and their potential benefits for making housing more affordable. It also describes the factors influencing acceptance. This report makes recommendations for expanding cost-effective energy conservation in the multifamily building sector. Among the recommendations are: expand HE rehab and retrofit techniques to multifamily building rehabs in which demolition of the interior structures is not required (moderate rehabs) or buildings are not vacant (e.g., weatherization upgrades); and expand research into the special opportunities for incorporating energy conservation in low-income communities.

Overheating in Hot Water- and Steam-Heated Multifamily Buildings  

SciTech Connect

Apartment temperature data have been collected from the archives of companies that provide energy management systems (EMS) to multifamily buildings in the Northeast U.S. The data have been analyzed from more than 100 apartments in eighteen buildings where EMS systems were already installed to quantify the degree of overheating. This research attempts to answer the question, 'What is the magnitude of apartment overheating in multifamily buildings with central hot water or steam heat?' This report provides valuable information to researchers, utility program managers and building owners interested in controlling heating energy waste and improving resident comfort. Apartment temperature data were analyzed for deviation from a 70 degrees F desired setpoint and for variation by heating system type, apartment floor level and ambient conditions. The data shows that overheating is significant in these multifamily buildings with both hot water and steam heating systems.

Passive solar design for multi-family buildings. Case studies and conclusions from Massachusetts' Multi-Family Passive Solar Program  

SciTech Connect

This book is the culmination of a four-year effort. It summarizes experiences and conclusions from Massachusetts' Multi-Family Passive Solar Program (MFPS) - a pioneering project conceived at the Executive Office of Energy Resources in February 1979 and still underway. The program educates architects, engineers, and housing officials about passive solar design by addressing problems and opportunities in their own buildings. It is the first major investigation of multi-family passive solar design in this country and has served as a national model. Section I provides an overview of the Multi-Family Passsive Solar Program and its projects, together with a summary of program conclusions and design recommendations. The section should be particularly useful to developers and housing officials interested in passive solar options. Section II presents detailed case studies on seven housing projects containing Energy Office-funded conservation and passive solar features. It gives the reader a thorough analysis of actual multi-family buildings, now occupied or under construction, and lists the unique problems and opportunities each presents. The case studies are candid about design errors, as well as successes, and should help architects and developers avoid similar mistakes. Section III focuses on the key energy design issues for multi-family passive solar buildings and is intended for architects and designers. The section begins with an overview of climate, micro-climate, and thermal comfort, followed by a chapter on what makes multi-family buildings different from homes or offices. Energy-conserving components and installation practices, window selection, and passive solar system design are then discussed in depth. The final chapter points out pitfalls to be avoided when analyzing conservation and solar costs, performance, and cost-effectiveness. The section is followed by appendices.

SciTech Connect

Merrimack Valley Habitat for Humanity (MVHfH) has partnered with Building Science Corporation to provide high performance affordable housing for 10 families in the retrofit of an existing brick building (a former convent) into condominiums. The research performed for this project provides information regarding advanced retrofit packages for multi-family masonry buildings in Cold climates. In particular, this project demonstrates safe, durable, and cost-effective solutions that will potentially benefit millions of multi-family brick buildings throughout the East Coast and Midwest (Cold climates). The retrofit packages provide insight on the opportunities for and constraints on retrofitting multifamily buildings with ambitious energy performance goals but a limited budget. The condominium conversion project will contribute to several areas of research on enclosures, space conditioning, and water heating. Enclosure items include insulation of mass masonry building on the interior, airtightness of these types of retrofits, multi-unit building compartmentalization, window selection, and roof insulation strategies. Mechanical system items include combined hydronic and space heating systems with hydronic distribution in small (low load) units, and ventilation system retrofits for multifamily buildings.

Need for Systematic Retrofit Analysis in Multifamily Buildings  

SciTech Connect

Multifamily housing offers high potential for energy savings through retrofits. A comprehensive energy audit with systematic evaluation of alternative energy measures is one of the key steps to realizing the full energy savings potential. However, this potential often remains unrealized when the selection of measures is (1) based on a one-size-fits-all approach originating from accustomed practices, (2) intended merely to meet code-compliance requirements, and/or (3) influenced by owner renter split incentive. In such cases, the benefits of comprehensive energy auditing are disregarded in view of the apparent difficulty in diagnosing multifamily buildings, evaluating alternative measures, and installing customized sets of measures. This paper highlights some of the barriers encountered in a multifamily housing retrofit project in Georgia and demonstrates the merits of systematic retrofit analysis by identifying opportunities for higher energy savings and improved comfort and indoor air quality that were missed in this project. The study uses a whole-building energy analysis conducted for a 10-unit, low-rise, multifamily building of a 110-unit apartment complex. The analysis projected a 24% energy savings from the measures installed in the building with a payback period of 10 years. Further analysis with a systematic evaluation of alternative measures showed that without compromising on the objectives of durability, livability, and appearance of the building, energy savings of up to 34% were achievable with a payback period of 7 years. The paper concludes by outlining recommendations that may benefit future retrofit projects by improving the audit process, streamlining tasks, and achieving higher energy savings.

The impact of building-integrated photovoltaics on the energy demand of multi-family dwellings in Brazil  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Brazil faces a continuous increase of energy demand and a decrease of available resources to expand the generation system. Residential buildings are responsible for 23% of the national electricity demand. Thus, it is necessary to search for new energy sources to both diversify and complement the energy mix. Building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) is building momentum worldwide and can be an interesting alternative for Brazil due its solar radiation characteristics. This work analyses the potential of seven BIPV technologies implemented in a residential prototype simulated in three different cities in Brazil (Natal, Braslia and Florianpolis). Simulations were performed using the software tool EnergyPlus to integrate PV power supply with building energy demand (domestic equipment and HVAC systems). The building model is a typical low-cost residential building for middle-class families, as massively constructed all over the country. Architectural input and heat gain schedules are defined from statistical data (Instituto Brasileiro de Geografia e EstatsticaBrazilian Institute for Geography and Statistics (IBGE) and Sistema de Informaes de Posses de Eletrodomsticos e Hbitos de ConsumoConsumer Habits and Appliance Ownership Information System (SIMPHA)). BIPV is considered in all opaque surfaces of the envelope. Results present an interesting potential for decentralized PV power supply even for vertical surfaces at low-latitude sites. In each faade, BIPV power supply can be directly linked to local climatic conditions. In general, for 30% of the year photovoltaic systems generate more energy than building demand, i.e., during this period it could be supplying the energy excess to the public electricity grid. Contrary to the common belief that vertical integration of PV is only suitable for high latitude countries, we show that there is a considerable amount of energy to be harvested from vertical faades at the sites investigated.

Evaluation of Ventilation Strategies in New Construction Multifamily Buildings  

SciTech Connect

In multifamily buildings, particularly in the Northeast, exhaust ventilation strategies are the norm as a means of meeting both local exhaust and whole-unit mechanical ventilation rates. The issue of where the 'fresh' air is coming from is gaining significance as air-tightness standards for enclosures become more stringent, and the 'normal leakage paths through the building envelope' disappear. CARB researchers have found that the majority of high performance, new construction, multifamily housing in the Northeast use one of four general strategies for ventilation: continuous exhaust only with no designated supply or make-up air source, continuous exhaust with ducted make-up air to apartments, continuous exhaust with supply through a make-up air device integral to the unit HVAC, and continuous exhaust with supply through a passive inlet device, such as a trickle vent. Insufficient information is available to designers on how these various systems are best applied. Product performance data are based on laboratory tests, and the assumption is that products will perform similarly in the field. Proper application involves matching expected performance at expected building pressures, but there is no guarantee that those conditions will exist consistently in the finished building. This research effort, which included several weeks of building pressure monitoring, sought to provide field validation of system performance. The performance of four substantially different strategies for providing make-up air to apartments was evaluated.

Short-Term Test Results: Multifamily Home Energy Efficiency Retrofit  

SciTech Connect

Multifamily deep energy retrofits (DERs) represent great potential for energy savings, while also providing valuable insights on research-generated efficiency measures, cost-effectiveness metrics, and risk factor strategies for the multifamily housing industry. The Bay Ridge project is comprised of a base scope retrofit with a goal of achieving 30% savings (relative to pre-retrofit), and a DER scope with a goal of 50% savings (relative to pre-retrofit). The base scope has been applied to the entire complex, except for one 12-unit building which underwent the DER scope. Findings from the implementation, commissioning, and short-term testing at Bay Ridge include air infiltration reductions of greater than 60% in the DER building; a hybrid heat pump system with a Savings to Investment Ratio (SIR) > 1 (relative to a high efficiency furnace) which also provides the resident with added incentive for energy savings; and duct leakage reductions of > 60% using an aerosolized duct sealing approach. Despite being a moderate rehab instead of a gut rehab, the Bay Ridge DER is currently projected to achieve energy savings ? 50% compared to pre-retrofit, and the short-term testing supports this estimate.

Multifamily Individual Heating and Ventilation Systems, Lawrence, Massachusetts (Fact Sheet)  

SciTech Connect

The conversion of an older Massachusetts building into condominiums illustrates a safe, durable, and cost-effective solution for heating and ventilation systems that can potentially benefit millions of multifamily buildings. Merrimack Valley Habitat for Humanity (MVHfH) partnered with U.S. Department of Energy Building America team Building Science Corporation (BSC) to provide high performance affordable housing for 10 families in the retrofit of an existing mass masonry building (a former convent). The original ventilation design for the project was provided by a local engineer and consisted of a single large heat recovery ventilator (HRV) located in a mechanical room in the basement with a centralized duct system providing supply air to the main living space and exhausting stale air from the single bathroom in each apartment. This design was deemed to be far too costly to install and operate for several reasons: the large central HRV was oversized and the specified flows to each apartment were much higher than the ASHRAE 62.2 rate; an extensive system of ductwork, smoke and fire dampers, and duct chases were specified; ductwork required a significant area of dropped ceilings; and the system lacked individual ventilation control in the apartments

NdHO, a novel oxyhydride  

SciTech Connect

A new metal oxyhydride; neodymium oxyhydride, NdHO, has been synthesized from a reactant mixture of metal hydride (CaH{sub 2} or NdH{sub 3}) and neodymium oxide (Nd{sub 2}O{sub 3}). The unit cell dimensions decrease smoothly in the series from LaHO, CeHO, PrHO to NdHO, in line with the lanthanide contraction. The crystal structure of NdHO is described on the basis of Rietveld refinement on neutron powder diffraction data: Space group: P4/nmm (no. 129, D{sub 4h}{sup 7}). Axis lengths: a=7.8480(5) A, c=5.5601(8) A. Volume: V=342.46(6) A{sup 3}. The tetragonal structure is derived from the fluorite structure, showing complete ordering of hydride and oxide ions over the anion sublatttice. The formation of NdHO was further substantiated by Raman spectroscopy. - Graphical Abstract: View of the NdHO structure. Highlights: > CaH{sub 2} or NdH{sub 3} react with Nd{sub 2}O{sub 3} in reducing atmospheres forming a new oxyhydride, NdHO. > NdHO crystalises in tetragonal space group P4/nmm with axes a=b=7.8480(5) A and c=5.5601(8) A. > The structure is similar to the fluorite structure with complete ordering of hydride and oxide ions. > Unit cell dimensions decrease smoothly in the series from LaHO, CeHO, PrHO to NdHO. > The formation of NdHO is substantiated by Raman spectroscopy.

Building America Case Study: Balancing Hydronic Systems in Multifamily Buildings, Chicago, Illinois (Fact Sheet)  

SciTech Connect

In multifamily hydronic systems, temperature imbalance may be caused by undersized piping, improperly adjusted balancing valves, inefficient water temperature and flow levels, and owner/occupant interaction with the boilers, distribution and controls. The effects of imbalance include tenant discomfort, higher energy use intensity and inefficient building operation. This paper explores cost-effective distribution upgrades and balancing measures in multifamily hydronic systems, providing a resource to contractors, auditors, and building owners on best practices to improve tenant comfort and lower operating costs. The research was conducted by The Partnership for Advanced Residential Retrofit (PARR) in conjunction with Elevate Energy. The team surveyed existing knowledge on cost-effective retrofits for optimizing distribution in typical multifamily hydronic systems, with the aim of identifying common situations and solutions, and then conducted case studies on two Chicago area buildings with known balancing issues in order to quantify the extent of temperature imbalance. At one of these buildings a booster pump was installed on a loop to an underheated wing of the building. This study found that unit temperature in a multifamily hydronic building can vary as much as 61 degrees F, particularly if windows are opened or tenants use intermittent supplemental heating sources like oven ranges. Average temperature spread at the building as a result of this retrofit decreased from 22.1 degrees F to 15.5 degrees F.

Cutting energy costs in multifamily housing: Practical case studies for the builder and developer  

SciTech Connect

This book is based on an expert evaluation of nine existing and three proposed multifamily housing projects across the US. The existing buildings include three lowrise projects (three to four stories), six midrises (five to seven stories), and three highrise buildings (nine to thirty-nine stories). Two projects were designed and built in the late 1950's, two in the late 1960's, and five late in the ''energy-crisis'' of the 1970's. The existing projects range from municipally subsidized elderly housing, to HUD Section-8 suburban developments, to luxury urban highrise buildings. The three ''future'' buildings, designed by the NAHB research team, were based on trends anticipated in the multifamily industry by IREM and NAHB leaders, over the next five years. The key trends identified were: downsizing of units (by 10 to 20%); increased project size (in number of units), denser developments (more midrise and highrise projects), and increased amenities - all in the context of more affordable housing.

Bottom line: comments on incremental costs in the Massachusetts multi-family passive solar housing program  

SciTech Connect

As part of its ongoing Passive Solar Multifamily Housing Program, the Office of Energy Resources performs detailed in-house estimates of incremental passive solar and conservation costs. These estimates are part of an iterative design reviewing process and are used to minimize costs while assuring good system performance. The Office of Energy Resources will finance approved energy conservation and passive solar features in over 20 elderly housing projects presently in various stages of design and construction. Experience gained refining cost-effective designs of these projects is discussed. The discussion includes: isolating and analyzing incremental costs, accruing credits for downsized heating systems, and accounting for soft variables such as additional space and architectural amenity. Cost implications of system type, building scale and geometry, and construction details are outlined, and incremental costs for several specific designs are presented in detail. Much of this information should be applicable to design for single-family and commercial buildings, as well as multi-family housing.

Massachusetts Multi-Family Passive Solar Program: recent activities and findings  

SciTech Connect

Passive solar features are being put into new multi-family housing for the elderly throughout Massachusetts. The Multi-Family Passive Solar (MFPS) program provides design and technical assistance to housing agencies, project architects, and engineers. To date, awards totalling almost $2 million have been made to 19 projects including almost 500 passive solar heated apartments. Thirteen are under construction and several are substantially complete. An extensive data base on incremental costs has been developed, and it is found that standard cost estimating techniques may substantially overestimate conservation and passive solar costs. It is indicated that if mechanical systems are intelligently sized to reflect improved conservation features, resultant cost credits may more than offset supposed incremental conservation costs.

Passive solar multi-family housing: design, development, finance and market strategies  

SciTech Connect

A basis is provided for problem definition of energy and multi-family housing. A comprehensive look at the costs of energy is taken, not just in the cost per Btu, but also in terms of the marginal or replacement cost of energy, the social and environmental costs of consuming imported energy, and at the projected future costs and availability of non-renewable energy supplies. Some reasons are identified why a developer should consider an energy efficient passive solar project, and the roles that each project team should play to achieve the successful project are described. The concepts necessary to understand the physics and design of passive solar systems are introduced. The unique characteristics of multiple housing are covered and basic ideas for the application of solar concepts are provided. Site selection and planning, design considerations for planning the building, design considerations for individual unit designs, and ways to integrate energy efficient and passive solar components in townhouses and apartments are covered. Techniques are covered for energy conscious and solar design and construction, with emphasis on supplying the tools for making decisions at the appropriate times in the design process. Also covered are: the profit motive to develop housing; state and federal programs, present or planned, the encourage passive solar and energy efficient construction; Solar and Conservation Banks; state and federal tax credits; and financial analysis and marketing strategies. The Massachusetts Passive Multi-Family Program is described. Twelve examples of passive solar multifamily projects from around the country are also described. (LEW)

Evaluation and demonstration of decentralized space and water heating versus centralized services for new and rehabilitated multifamily buildings. Final report  

SciTech Connect

The general objective of this research was aimed at developing sufficient technical and economic know-how to convince the building and design communities of the appropriateness and energy advantages of decentralized space and water heating for multifamily buildings. Two main goals were established to guide this research. First, the research sought to determine the cost-benefit advantages of decentralized space and water heating versus centralized systems for multifamily applications based on innovative gas piping and appliance technologies. The second goal was to ensure that this information is made available to the design community.

Bay Ridge Gardens - Mixed-Humid Affordable Multifamily Housing Deep Energy Retrofit  

SciTech Connect

Under this project, Newport Partners (as part of the BA-PIRC research team) evaluated the installation, measured performance, and cost-effectiveness of efficiency upgrade measures for a tenant-in-place DER at the Bay Ridge multifamily (MF) development in Annapolis, Maryland. The design and construction phase of the Bay Ridge project was completed in August 2012. This report summarizes system commissioning, short-term test results, utility bill data analysis, and analysis of real-time data collected over a one-year period after the retrofit was complete. The Bay Ridge project is comprised of a 'base scope' retrofit which was estimated to achieve a 30%+ savings (relative to pre-retrofit) on 186 apartments, and a 'DER scope' which was estimated to achieve 50% savings (relative to pre-retrofit) on a 12-unit building. The base scope was applied to the entire apartment complex, except for one 12-unit building which underwent the DER scope. A wide range of efficiency measures was applied to pursue this savings target for the DER building, including improvements/replacements of mechanical equipment and distribution systems, appliances, lighting and lighting controls, the building envelope, hot water conservation measures, and resident education. The results of this research build upon the current body of knowledge of multifamily retrofits. Towards this end, the research team has collected and generated data on the selection of measures, their estimated performance, their measured performance, and risk factors and their impact on potential measures.

Predicted Versus Actual Savings for a Low-Rise Multifamily Retrofit in Boulder, Colorado  

SciTech Connect

To determine the most cost-effective methods of improving buildings, accurate analysis and prediction of the energy use of existing buildings is essential. However, multiple studies confirm that analysis methods tend to over-predict energy use in poorly insulated, leaky homes and thus, the savings associated with improving those homes. In NREL's report titled 'Assessing and Improving the Accuracy of Energy Analysis of Residential Buildings,' researchers propose a method for improving the accuracy of residential energy analysis methods. A key step in this process involves the comparisons of predicted versus metered energy use and savings. In support of this research need, CARB evaluated the retrofit of a multifamily building in Boulder, CO. The updated property is a 37 unit, 2 story apartment complex built in 1950, which underwent renovations in early 2009 to bring it into compliance with Boulder, CO's SmartRegs ordinance. Goals of the study were to: 1) evaluate predicted versus actual savings due to the improvements, 2) identify areas where the modeling assumptions may need to be changed, and 3) determine common changes made by renters that would negatively impact energy savings. In this study, CARB seeks to improve the accuracy of modeling software while assessing retrofit measures to specifically determine which are most effective for large multifamily complexes in the cold climate region. Other issues that were investigated include the effects of improving building efficiency on tenant comfort, the impact on tenant turnover rates, and the potential market barriers for this type of community scale project.

Development of a housing performance evaluation model for multi-family residential buildings in Korea  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This paper presents the development and application of a housing performance evaluation model for multi-family residential buildings in Korea. This model is intended to encourage initiatives toward achieving better housing performance and to support a homebuyer's decision-making on housing comparison and selection. Forty-one objective and feasible housing performance indicators, which were selected from the review of existing evaluation models and interviews with experts, are classified into a series of categories. The weights of each category and indicator are calculated by using the analytic hierarchy process (AHP) analysis, and a weight is converted into credit. Next, the performance grades are divided into four levels, and evaluation criteria are suggested based on statutory performance value or the one frequently met in practice. Finally, the evaluation program and the application procedure are established through the field case study. This model can be used for objective and practical evaluation and comparison of residential housing alternatives.

Energy Performance Comparison of Heating and Air Conditioning Systems for Multi-Family Residential Buildings  

SciTech Connect

The type of heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system has a large impact on the heating and cooling energy consumption in multifamily residential buildings. This paper compares the energy performance of three HVAC systems: a direct expansion (DX) split system, a split air source heat pump (ASHP) system, and a closed-loop water source heat pump (WSHP) system with a boiler and an evaporative fluid cooler as the central heating and cooling source. All three systems use gas furnace for heating or heating backup. The comparison is made in a number of scenarios including different climate conditions, system operation schemes and applicable building codes. It is found that with the minimum code-compliant equipment efficiency, ASHP performs the best among all scenarios except in extremely code climates. WSHP tends to perform better than the split DX system in cold climates but worse in hot climates.

Efficient Multifamily Homes in a Hot-Humid Climate by Atlantic Housing Partners  

SciTech Connect

With assistance from the Florida Solar Energy Center (FSEC) and its Building America Partnership for Improved Residential Construction (BA-PIRC), Atlantic Housing Partners (AHP) has implemented a high performance, systems engineered package of measures. This report demonstrates how the initiative achieves Building America (BA) goals of 30%-50% energy savings. Specifically, the goals are documented as being achieved in the new construction multifamily housing sector in the hot humid climate. Results from energy modeling of the high performance package are presented. The role of utility allowance calculations, used as part of the low-income housing tax credit process, to value those energy savings is discussed, as is customer satisfaction with heat pump water heaters.

Comparison of measurement indices of noise intrusions in multi?family housing  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Methods for measuring sound levels associated with transportation impact and airborne sound intrusions in multi?family housing are well established in the field. This paper compares field testing of assemblies where complaints and retrofits have been involved where traditional assessments of intruding noises showed compliance with design criteria but where residents and/or building owners perceived problems. Case study 1 involves noise from airplanes approaching a runway at a large international airport as heard in an all?glass high?rise condominium evaluated by LDNs and SELs of actual flyovers in computer models and in a full size mock?up of a typical unit built on site. Case study 2 involves noise from outdoor amplified entertainment propagating into neighborhoods as evaluated by various noise ordinance criteria. Case study 3 involves footstep noise through flooring systems comparing IIC ratings with actual sound pressure levels of people walking on floors above. Case study 4 compares noise and vibration levels for various pieces of mechanical equipment before and after retrofit with NC RC and other room criteria. Auralizations of the case studies will be shown along with measurement data to illustrate the diagnostics made in each case.

Sustainability assessment of renovation packages for increased energy efficiency for multi-family buildings in Sweden  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In this paper, we propose a method for assessing renovation packages drawn up with the goal of increasing energy efficiency. The method includes calculation of bought energy demand, life-cycle cost (LCC) analysis and assessment of the building according to the Swedish environmental rating tool Miljbyggnad (MB). In this way the methodology assesses economic, indoor environmental quality (IEQ) and specifically environmental aspects associated with energy demand of such packages from a sustainability point-of-view. Through MB, energy efficiency packages are placed in context with other necessary measures required to improve environmental performance in buildings, providing a consistent and systematic basis other than simply financial performance by which to compare capital improvements. The method is further explained and analyzed by applying it in three case studies. In each case study a multi-family building representing a typologically significant class in the Swedish building stock is considered, and for each building a base case and two renovation packages with higher initial investment requirement and higher energy efficiency are defined. It is shown that higher efficiency packages can impact IEQ indicators both positively and negatively and that packages reducing energy demand by approx. 50% have somewhat higher LCC. Identified positive IEQ impacts point to added value for packages that may not otherwise be communicated, while negative impacts identify areas where packages need to be improved, or where MB indicators may be referred to as specifications in procurement procedures.

Differential rates for district heating and the influence on the optimal retrofit strategy for multi-family buildings  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

When renovating existing multi-family buildings it is very important to implement the best retrofit strategy possible in order to minimize the remaining life-cycle cost for the building. If the building is heated with district heating this strategy of course changes due to the energy rate used by the utility. It is also very important for the utility that the consumer is encouraged to save energy when there is a need for it, i.e. during peak load conditions. Our paper shows that an accurate cost differential rate provides all these facilities.

Building America Case Study: Evaluation of Ventilation Strategies in New Construction Multifamily Buildings, New York, New York (Fact Sheet)  

SciTech Connect

In multifamily buildings, particularly in the Northeast, exhaust ventilation strategies are the norm as a means of meeting both local exhaust and whole-unit mechanical ventilation rates. The issue of where the 'fresh' air is coming from is gaining significance as air-tightness standards for enclosures become more stringent, and the 'normal leakage paths through the building envelope' disappear. CARB researchers have found that the majority of high performance, new construction, multifamily housing in the Northeast use one of four general strategies for ventilation: continuous exhaust only with no designated supply or make-up air source, continuous exhaust with ducted make-up air to apartments, continuous exhaust with supply through a make-up air device integral to the unit HVAC, and continuous exhaust with supply through a passive inlet device, such as a trickle vent. Insufficient information is available to designers on how these various systems are best applied. Product performance data are based on laboratory tests, and the assumption is that products will perform similarly in the field. Proper application involves matching expected performance at expected building pressures, but there is no guarantee that those conditions will exist consistently in the finished building. This research effort, which included several weeks of building pressure monitoring, sought to provide field validation of system performance. The performance of four substantially different strategies for providing make-up air to apartments was evaluated.

Solar system tests of Ho?ava-Lifshitz gravity  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Recently, a renormalizable gravity theory with higher spatial derivatives in four dimensions was proposed by Ho\\v{r}ava. The theory reduces to Einstein gravity with a non-vanishing cosmological constant in IR, but it has improved UV behaviors. The spherically symmetric black hole solutions for an arbitrary cosmological constant, which represent the generalization of the standard Schwarzschild-(A)dS solution, has also been obtained for the Ho\\v{r}ava-Lifshitz theory. The exact asymptotically flat Schwarzschild type solution of the gravitational field equations in Ho\\v{r}ava gravity contains a quadratic increasing term, as well as the square root of a fourth order polynomial in the radial coordinate, and it depends on one arbitrary integration constant. The IR modified Ho\\v{r}ava gravity seems to be consistent with the current observational data, but in order to test its viability more observational constraints are necessary. In the present paper we consider the possibility of observationally testing Ho\\v{r}ava gravity at the scale of the Solar System, by considering the classical tests of general relativity (perihelion precession of the planet Mercury, deflection of light by the Sun and the radar echo delay) for the spherically symmetric black hole solution of Ho\\v{r}ava-Lifshitz gravity. All these gravitational effects can be fully explained in the framework of the vacuum solution of the gravity. Moreover, the study of the classical general relativistic tests also constrain the free parameter of the solution.

Two new isotopes, {sup 145}Tm and {sup 140}Ho and three isomers in previously known isotopes, {sup 141m}Ho, {sup 150m}Lu and {sup 151m}Lu have been discovered and studied via their decay by proton emission. These proton emitters were produced at the Holifield Radioactive Ion Beam Facility (HRIBF) by heavy-ion fusion-evaporation reactions, separated in A/Q with a recoil mass spectrometer (RMS), and detected in a double-sided silicon strip detector (DSSD). The decay energy and half-life was measured for each new emitter. An analysis in terms of a spherical shell model is applied to the Tm and Lu nuclei, but Ho is considerably deformed and requires a collective model interpretation.

In accordance with federal legislation, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has conducted a project to demonstrate use of its Energy Conservation Voluntary Performance Standards for Commercial and Multi-Family High-Rise Residential Buildings; Mandatory for New Federal Buildings; Interim Rule (referred to in this report as DOE-1993). A key requisite of the legislation requires DOE to develop commercial building energy standards that are cost effective. During the demonstration project, DOE specifically addressed this issue by assessing the impacts of the standards on (1) construction costs, (2) builders (and especially small builders) of multi-family, high-rise buildings, and (3) the ability of low-to moderate-income persons to purchase or rent units in such buildings. This document reports on this project.

Primary energy consumption of the dwelling with solar hot water system and biomass boiler  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This paper presents a new methodology, based on the energy performance of buildings Directive related European norms. It is developed to overcome ambiguities and incompleteness of these standards in determining the delivered and primary energy. The available procedures from the present Algorithm for determining the energy demands and efficiency of technical systems in buildings, normally used for energy performance certification of buildings, also allow detailed analyzes of the influence of particular system components on the overall system energy efficiency. The calculation example is given for a Croatian reference dwelling, equipped with a solar hot water system, backed up with a biomass boiler for space heating and domestic hot water purposes as a part of the dwelling energy performance certification. Calculations were performed for two cases corresponding to different levels of the dwelling thermal insulation with an appropriate heating system capacity, in order to investigate the influence of the building heat losses on the system design and energy consumption. The results are compared against those obtained for the conventional system with a gas boiler in terms of the primary energy consumption as well as of investment and operating costs. These results indicate great reduction in both delivered and primary energy consumption when a solar system with biomass boiler is used instead of the conventional one. Higher savings are obtained in the case of the dwelling with higher energy need for space heating. Such dwellings also have a shorter payback period than the ones with better thermal insulation.

Extended Ho?ava gravity and Einstein-aether theory  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Einstein-aether theory is general relativity coupled to a dynamical, unit timelike vector. If this vector is restricted in the action to be hypersurface orthogonal, the theory is identical to the IR limit of the extension of Ho?ava gravity proposed by Blas, Pujols and Sibiryakov. Hypersurface orthogonal solutions of Einstein-aether theory are solutions to the IR limit of this theory, hence numerous results already obtained for Einstein-aether theory carry over.

Forecasting energy consumption of multi-family residential buildings using support vector regression: Investigating the impact of temporal and spatial monitoring granularity on performance accuracy  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Buildings are the dominant source of energy consumption and environmental emissions in urban areas. Therefore, the ability to forecast and characterize building energy consumption is vital to implementing urban energy management and efficiency initiatives required to curb emissions. Advances in smart metering technology have enabled researchers to develop sensor based approaches to forecast building energy consumption that necessitate less input data than traditional methods. Sensor-based forecasting utilizes machine learning techniques to infer the complex relationships between consumption and influencing variables (e.g., weather, time of day, previous consumption). While sensor-based forecasting has been studied extensively for commercial buildings, there is a paucity of research applying this data-driven approach to the multi-family residential sector. In this paper, we build a sensor-based forecasting model using Support Vector Regression (SVR), a commonly used machine learning technique, and apply it to an empirical data-set from a multi-family residential building in New York City. We expand our study to examine the impact of temporal (i.e., daily, hourly, 10min intervals) and spatial (i.e., whole building, by floor, by unit) granularity have on the predictive power of our single-step model. Results indicate that sensor based forecasting models can be extended to multi-family residential buildings and that the optimal monitoring granularity occurs at the by floor level in hourly intervals. In addition to implications for the development of residential energy forecasting models, our results have practical significance for the deployment and installation of advanced smart metering devices. Ultimately, accurate and cost effective wide-scale energy prediction is a vital step towards next-generation energy efficiency initiatives, which will require not only consideration of the methods, but the scales for which data can be distilled into meaningful information.

Energy improvement of a conventional dwelling in Argentina through thermal simulation  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This paper analyses the design, technology, thermal behaviour, and energy consumption of both a conventional and a refurbished dwelling located in a region with a temperate-cold climate in central Argentina. The thermal behaviour and the energy consumption of the conventional building were monitored during winter. The experimental data were analysed and included in a simulation of the transient thermal behaviour of the house. Measurements and simulation were in agreement, showing a mean deviation below 0.5C. To reduce the heating and cooling loads, the dwelling was refurbished and its thermal behaviour was studied through a computer simulation, for the critical seasons (winter and summer) and for two occupancy schedules (with and without inhabitants). The refurbishment included passive solar heating, shading, and an insulated envelope. These successful changes allowed energy savings of 66% and 52% for winter and summer, respectively.

The socio-economic, dwelling and appliance related factors affecting electricity consumption in domestic buildings  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This paper aims to investigate the socio-economic, dwelling and appliance related factors that have significant or non-significant effects on domestic electricity consumption. To achieve this aim, a comprehensive literature review of international research investigating these factors was undertaken. Although papers examining the factors affecting electricity demand are numerous, to the authors knowledge, a comprehensive analysis taking stock of all previous findings has not previously been undertaken. The review establishes that no less than 62 factors potentially have an effect on domestic electricity use. This includes 13 socio-economic factors, 12 dwelling factors and 37 appliance factors. Of the 62 factors, four of the socio-economic factors, seven of the dwelling factors, and nine of the appliance related factors were found to unambiguously have a significant positive effect on electricity use. This paper contributes to a better understanding of those factors that certainly affect electricity consumption and those for which effects are unclear and require further research. Understanding the effects of factors can support both the implementation of effective energy policy and aid prediction of future electricity consumption in the domestic sector.

We report magnetic susceptibility measurements of RB66 (R = Gd, Tb, Ho, Er, and Lu) boron-rich rare earth containing borides down to 50 mK. The data suggest a spin glass low temperature state for RB66 (R = Gd, Tb, Ho, and Er) with the freezing temperatures below 1 K. The magnetic properties appear to be influenced by the anisotropy of the magnetic moments, probably via the crystalline electric field effects.

Undoing the twist: The Ho?ava limit of Einstein-aether theory  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We show that Ho?ava gravity can be obtained from Einstein-aether theory in the limit that the twist coupling constant goes to infinity, while holding fixed the expansion, shear and acceleration couplings. This limit helps to clarify the relation between the two theories, and allows Ho?ava results to be obtained from Einstein-aether ones. The limit is illustrated with several examples, including rotating black hole equations, parametrized post-Newtonian parameters, and radiation rates from binary systems.

Comparative studies of microwave absorption in the singlet paramagnets HoVO{sub 4} and HoBa{sub 2}Cu{sub 3}O{sub x} in strong pulsed magnetic fields  

SciTech Connect

Microwave absorption in the tetragonal singlet paramagnets HoVO{sub 4} (zircon structure) and HoBa{sub 2}Cu{sub 3}O{sub x} (x {approx} 6, layered perovskite structure) is studied and compared in pulsed magnetic fields up to 40 T at low temperatures. These paramagnets are characterized by a singlet-doublet scheme of the low-lying levels of the Ho{sup 3+} ion in a crystal field. In a magnetic field directed along the tetragonal axis, HoVO{sub 4} exhibits resonance absorption lines at wavelengths of 871, 406, and 305 {mu}m, which correspond to electron transitions between the low-lying levels of the Ho{sup 3+} ion in the crystal field. The positions and intensities of these absorption lines in HoVO{sub 4} are well described in terms of the crystal-field formalism with the well-known interaction parameters. The absorption spectra of HoBa{sub 2}Cu{sub 3}O{sub x} at a wavelength of 871 {mu}m exhibit broad resonance absorption lines against the background of strong nonresonance absorption. The effects of low-symmetry (orthorhombic, monoclinic) crystal-field components, the deviation of a magnetic field from a symmetry axis, and various pair interactions on the absorption spectra of the HoVO{sub 4} and HoBa{sub 2}Cu{sub 3}O{sub x} crystals are discussed.

Building America Case Study: Predicting Envelope Leakage in Attached Dwellings (Fact Sheet)  

SciTech Connect

'The cost for blower testing is high, because it is labor intensive, and it may disrupt occupants in multiple units. This high cost and disruption deters program participants, and dissuades them from pursuing energy improvements that would trigger air leakage testing, such as improvements to the building envelope.' This statement found in a 2012 report by Heschong Mahone Group emphasizes the importance of reducing the cost and complexity of blower testing in multifamily buildings. Energy efficiency opportunities are being bypassed. The cost of single blower testing is on the order of $300. The cost for guarded blower door testing, the more appropriate test for assessing energy savings opportunities, could easily be six times that and that's only if you have the equipment and simultaneous access to multiple apartments. Thus, the proper test is simply not performed. The objective of the 2013 research project was to develop the model for predicting fully guarded test results (FGT), using unguarded test data and specific building features of apartment units. The model developed has a coefficient of determination R2 value of 0.53 with a root mean square error (RMSE) of 0.13. Both statistical metrics indicate that the model is relatively strong. When tested against data that was not included in the development of the model, prediction accuracy was within 19%, which is reasonable given that seasonal differences in blower door measurements can vary by as much as 25%.

Energy retrofitting of a typical old Danish multi-family building to a nearly-zero energy building based on experiences from a test apartment  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The purpose of the research described in this paper was to demonstrate that an old Danish multi-family building built in 1896 could be retrofitted to a nearly-zero energy building. Three types of retrofit measures were implemented in a test apartment to obtain practical experiences. The first measure was the installation of two different types of interior insulation, specifically, an insulation component consisting of an aerogelstone wool mixture or vacuum insulation panels. The second measure related to the retrofit of windows in which five measures were completed that consisted of applying a secondary frame, a sash mounted on the frame or to coupled frames. The third measure consisted of installing a decentralised mechanical ventilation system with heat recovery. The results showed that following the retrofit the building's theoretical energy use diminished from 162.5kWh/(m2year) to 51.5kWh/(m2year), corresponding to a reduction in energy use of 68%. The theoretical energy use after retrofitting fulfilled the requirements for new buildings in Denmark. The practical experiences that were retained following the retrofit were that the ventilation system ought to be installed with low noise components, insulation materials must be sized and cut to fit on site, and that new windows were selected.

Photocatalytic studies of HoZrO nano-composite with controllable composition and defects  

SciTech Connect

With the help of solgel method assisted by melting salt, a series of HoZrO nano-composite with controllable composition and defects have been successfully prepared. Characterization results show that the positions, intensity, and width of the X-ray diffraction peaks of the products have a regular variation with the increase of zirconium element which implies the gradual changes of crystal spacing and product size. At the same time, the molar ratios between holmium and zirconium ions are consistent with the chemical formula and both of them are uniformly distributed in products further showing the perfect formation of targeted materials. Optical properties reveal that diversified defect forms of HoZrO nano-composite lead to the different absorptions of visible light. Photocatalytic experiments demonstrate Zr{sub 0.8}Ho{sub 0.2}O{sub 2??} nano-crystals have excellent visible-light-responsive photocatalytic activities on some familiar dyes (e.g.: methylene blue and Rhodamine B) which results from the special defect structure, better absorption of visible light and larger specific surface area. It follows that Zr{sub 0.8}Ho{sub 0.2}O{sub 2??} nano-crystals are a new kind of visible-light-responsive photocatalysts with better prospects in conversion and utilization of solar energy. Also, the present melting salt assisted route might be generalized to synthesize other AxByOz composite oxide nano-crystals with more complicated structures. - Highlights: HoZrO nano-composite with controllable composition and defects has been obtained. Diversified defect forms of products lead to the different visible light absorption. Zr{sub 0.8}Ho{sub 0.2}O{sub 2??} nano-crystals have excellent photocatalytic activities.

Measurement Properties of the Groningen Frailty Indicator in Home-Dwelling andInstitutionalized Elderly People  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Objectives To enable prevention of poor outcome in elderly people, a valid instrument is required to detect individuals at high risk. The concept of frailty is a better predictor than age alone. The Groningen Frailty Indicator (GFI) has been developed to identify frailty. We assessed feasibility, reliability, and construct validity of the self-assessment version of the GFI. Design Cross-sectional. Setting Community-based. Participants Home-dwelling and institutionalized elderly persons were included in the study (n= 353) who met the following inclusion criteria: persons 65 years and older who were able to fill out questionnaires. Measurements The feasibility of the GFI was assessed by determining the proportion of missing values per item. The internal consistency reliability of the GFI was established by calculating the KR-20. Mann-Whitney and Kruskal-Wallis tests were applied to assess discrimination between specific subgroups (known group validity). Convergent and discriminant validity was assessed using Spearman Rank correlations between GFI and diseases and disorders, case complexity, and health care needs (INTERMED), life satisfaction (Cantril Ladder of Life), activities of daily living (Katz), quality of life (EQ-5D), and mental health (SF-36). Finally, we used multivariate regression analyses to evaluate the cutoff score of the GFI (<4 versus ?4). Results A total of 296 (84%) of the participants completed all items of the GFI; the internal consistency was 0.68. The GFI yielded statistically significant GFI scores for subgroups (known group validity). The correlations for the convergent (range 0.45 to 0.61) and discriminant validity (range 0.08 to 0.50) were also as hypothesized. In contrast with nonfrail participants, frail older persons had higher levels of case complexity, disability, and lower quality of life and life satisfaction. Conclusions This study supports the feasibility, reliability, and validity of the self-assessment version of the GFI in home-dwelling and institutionalized elderly people.

Crystal structure of the hexagonal (Zn, Mg)4Ho and (Zn, Mg)4Er  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The crystal structure of the hexagonal (Zn, Mg)4Ho/Er was determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis. For the Zn68.4Mg12.7Ho18.9, the structural model, refined to a final R-value of 0.0672, has the composition of Zn69.34Mg12.01Ho18.65, a=14.259 and c=14.007, and the space group P63/mmc (No. 194). Among the 10 Zn, 2 Mg, and 4 Ho independent sites, 3 Zn sites are icosahedral coordinated whereas 1 Mg is located at the center of a CN15 Kasper deltahedron enclosed by 26 triangles and 15 vertices. In the ?100? directions, there are four interpenetrated icosahedra, I4(P), within an a period, constituting an icosahedral (001) layer block in half of the unit-cell. In the [001] direction, in addition to the two face-sharing icosahedra, I2(F), there is still a CN15 Kasper deltahedron. For the Zn70.8Mg10.6Er18.6, the final refinement led to a R-value of 0.0708. The atom coordinates are very close to those of above (Zn, Mg)4Ho, the largest difference between two corresponding coordinates being only 0.00086. Thus (Zn, Mg)4Er is iso-structural with (Zn, Mg)4Ho. This hexagonal (Zn, Mg)4RE phase has also been found in RE=Y, Sm, Gd, Dy, and Yb cases and they are probably also iso-structural with (Zn, Mg)4Ho/Er. This structure is icosahedrally closely related to the other two known, hexagonal, Zn-rich (Zn, Mg)nRE structures, namely, the Zn6Mg3Y/Sm/Gd [H. Takakura, A. Sato, A. Yamamoto, A.P. Tsai, Phil. Mag. Lett. 78 (1998) 263; K. Sugiyama, K. Yasuda, T. Ohsuna, K. Hiraga, Z. Kristallogr. 213 (1998) 537] and the Zn3MgY [D.W. Deng, K.H. Kuo, Z.P. Luo, D.J. Miller, M.J. Kramer, D.W. Dennis, J. Alloys Compd. 373 (2004) 156]. All these three hexagonal phases coexist with the icosahedral quasicrystal in the ZnMgRE alloys.

A comparative appraisal of the use of rainwater harvesting in single and multi-family buildings of the Metropolitan Area of Barcelona (Spain): social experience, drinking water savings and economic costs  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Many urban areas suffer water scarcity but paradoxically, a local source of water such as rainwater is mostly treated as a risk rather than as a valuable resource. Scepticism regarding the use of rainwater harvesting technologies still prevails today, particularly in low precipitation areas. However, some regions such as the Metropolitan Area of Barcelona (MAB) have started to promote the use of rainwater through specific regulations and incentives. This paper aims to examine the use of rainwater harvesting in the two main types of buildings prevalent in the MAB by analysing users practices and perceptions, drinking water savings and economic costs. Despite low precipitation inputs and a high variability of precipitation, daily balances show that toilet flushing demand of a single family house can be practically met with a relatively small tank. Rooftop rainwater can also meet more than 60% of the landscape irrigation demand in both single and multi-family buildings. The main drawback is the long pay-back period that rainwater harvesting systems present today. Nevertheless, it is remarkable that in multi-family buildings residents usually take no notice of the costs associated with the system. In contrast, benefits for the whole society are usually much more appreciated. Users reactions and their level of satisfaction towards rainwater harvesting systems suggest that both regulations and subsidies are good strategies to advocate and expand rainwater harvesting technologies in residential areas. However, a multidirectional learning environment needs to be promoted to ensure a proper use of rainwater harvesting systems and risk minimisation.

Smart meters and energy savings in Italy: Determining the effectiveness of persuasive communication in dwellings  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract To secure a sustainable energy development in the residential sector, attitudes and human behavior need to be modified toward more efficient and conscious energy usage. The goal of this research is to assess evaluations and to test the effectiveness in reducing domestic electricity consumption. The aim of the smart monitoring system we evaluate is to provide households with a user-friendly tool that improves awareness of energy behavior in homes, enabling better management via the visualization of consumption and persuasive tailored information on domestic electricity use. In our study, the system was tested on 31 Italian families selected among volunteers all over Italy, participating to the first trial phase from October 2012 to November 2013. A combination of persuasive communication strategies such as graphical real-time and historical feedback based on real data and comparison tools to encourage competitiveness against similar households were provided to users through a domestic user-friendly interface. In addition, personalized energy saving prompts were sent via web-newsletters to trial users. The study concludes that energy related persuasive communication is effective in reducing electricity consumption in dwellings on average ?18% and up to ?57%.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging-Based Radiation-Absorbed Dose Estimation of 166Ho Microspheres in Liver Radioembolization  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Purpose To investigate the potential of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for accurate assessment of the three-dimensional 166Ho activity distribution to estimate radiation-absorbed dose distributions in 166Ho-loaded poly (L-lactic acid) microsphere (166Ho-PLLA-MS) liver radioembolization. Methods and Materials MRI, computed tomography (CT), and single photon emission CT (SPECT) experiments were conducted on an anthropomorphic gel phantom with tumor-simulating gel samples and on an excised human tumor-bearing liver, both containing known amounts of 166Ho-PLLA-MS. Three-dimensional radiation-absorbed dose distributions were estimated at the voxel level by convolving the 166Ho activity distribution, derived from quantitative MRI data, with a 166Ho dose point-kernel generated by MCNP (Monte Carlo N-Particle transport code) and from Medical Internal Radiation Dose Pamphlet 17. MRI-based radiation-absorbed dose distributions were qualitatively compared with CT and autoradiography images and quantitatively compared with SPECT-based dose distributions. Both MRI- and SPECT-based activity estimations were validated against dose calibrator measurements. Results Evaluation on an anthropomorphic phantom showed that MRI enables accurate assessment of local 166Ho-PLLA-MS mass and activity distributions, as supported by a regression coefficient of 1.05 and a correlation coefficient of 0.99, relating local MRI-based mass and activity calculations to reference values obtained with a dose calibrator. Estimated MRI-based radiation-absorbed dose distributions of 166Ho-PLLA-MS in an exvivo human liver visually showed high correspondence to SPECT-based radiation-absorbed dose distributions. Quantitative analysis revealed that the differences in local and total amounts of 166Ho-PLLA-MS estimated by MRI, SPECT, and the dose calibrator were within 10%. Excellent agreement was observed between MRI- and SPECT-based dosevolume histograms. Conclusions Quantitative MRI was demonstrated to provide accurate three-dimensional 166Ho-PLLA-MS activity distributions, enabling localized intrahepatic radiation-absorbed dose estimation by convolution with a 166Ho dose point-kernel for liver radioembolization treatment optimization and evaluation.

Structure of three-quasiparticle isomers in {sup 169}Ho and {sup 171}Tm  

SciTech Connect

A three-quasiparticle isomer with {tau}=170(8) {mu}s and K{sup {pi}=} (19/2{sup +}) has been identified in the neutron-rich isotope {sup 169}Ho. The isomer decays with K-forbidden transitions to members of a band associated with the 7/2{sup -}[523] proton configuration, whose structure is characterized through analysis of the in-band {gamma}-ray branching ratios. In the isotone {sup 171}Tm, the rotational band based on the known 19/2{sup +}, three-quasiparticle isomer has also been observed. Alternative one-proton two-neutron configurations for the isomer in {sup 169}Ho are discussed in terms of multiquasiparticle calculations and through a comparison with the structures observed in {sup 171}Tm.

The generalized second law of thermodynamics in Ho?ava-Lifshitz cosmology  

SciTech Connect

We investigate the validity of the generalized second law of thermodynamics in a universe governed by Ho?ava-Lifshitz gravity. Under the equilibrium assumption, that is in the late-time cosmological regime, we calculate separately the entropy time-variation for the matter fluid and, using the modified entropy relation, that of the apparent horizon itself. We find that under detailed balance the generalized second law is generally valid for flat and closed geometry and it is conditionally valid for an open universe, while beyond detailed balance it is only conditionally valid for all curvatures. Furthermore, we also follow the effective approach showing that it can lead to misleading results. The non-complete validity of the generalized second law could either provide a suggestion for its different application, or act as an additional problematic feature of Ho?ava-Lifshitz gravity.

A Positive-Energy Theorem for Einstein-Aether and Ho?ava Gravity  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Energy positivity is established for a class of solutions to Einstein-aether theory and the IR limit of Ho?ava gravity within a certain range of coupling parameters. The class consists of solutions where the aether 4-vector is divergence-free on a spacelike surface to which it is orthogonal (which implies that the surface is maximal). In particular, this result holds for spherically symmetric solutions at a moment of time symmetry.

SU?GG?J?138: Effect of RF Pulse Dwell Time on Eddy Current and Motion Compensation in Multi?Shot Diffusion?Weighted MRI  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Purpose: Diffusion?weighted (DW) MRI can provide information to improve target delineation in radiation treatment planning. The widely used twice?refocused spin?echo (TRSE) sequence is optimized to diminish eddy current?induced geometric distortions. However the TRSE sequence imposes a longer minimum echo time which precludes its use in acquiring DW images in tissues with short T2s. We found that radiofrequency (RF) pulse dwell times can also affect DW image quality and demonstrate that high?fidelity multi?shot DW images can be obtained using the non?optimized Stejkal and Tanner (ST) sequence when short RF pulse dwell times are employed. Method and Materials: A pulse sequence of our own design was implemented to acquire DW images using ST and TRSE diffusion?encoding schemes with 25 usec and 2 usec RF pulse dwell times. Single? and multi?shot spiral DW images (b=0 1000 s/mm2) of phantom and healthy volunteer were acquired on a 3.0T Siemens Verio scanner.Images were reconstructed offline using custom software developed at our Institution. Results: Single? and multi?shot non?DW images did not exhibit a dependence on RF pulse dwell time. Furthermore single?shot DW images acquired with the TRSE method did not exhibit a dependence on RF pulse dwell time. However multi?shot DW images exhibited significant artifacts at long RF pulse dwell times even for the optimized TRSE method. Reducing the RF pulse dwell time improved the inherent immunity of the sequences to eddy current and motion?induced artifacts permitting acquisition of high?fidelity multi?shot DW images even with the non?optimized ST method. Conclusions: Compensation of eddy current and motion?induced artifacts in multi?shot DW imaging can be affected by choice of RF pulse dwell time. High?fidelity multi?shot DW images of short T2 tissues can be obtained using the non?optimized traditional ST method so long as the RF pulse dwell time is kept short.

Magnetic x-ray scattering at the M{sub 5} absorption edge of Ho  

SciTech Connect

Magnetic x-ray scattering from thin Ho-metal films at M{sub 5} resonance reveals atomic scattering lengths up to 200r{sub 0}--i.e., of the same order of magnitude as predicted theoretically by Hannon et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 61, 1245 (1988)]. The photon-energy dependence of first- and second-order magnetic satellites allows a straightforward identification of circular and linear dichroic contributions. A direct comparison to magnetic neutron scattering demonstrates the potential of the method for studies of complex magnetic structures in ultrathin films and highly diluted materials.

Cosmological QCD phase transition in steady non-equilibrium dissipative Ho?ava-Lifshitz early universe  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We study the phase transition from quark-gluon plasma to hadrons in the early universe in the context of non-equilibrium thermodynamics. According to the standard model of cosmology, a phase transition associated with chiral symmetry breaking after the electro-weak transition has occurred when the universe was about $1-10\\mu s$ old. We focus attention on such a phase transition in the presence of a viscous relativistic cosmological background fluid in the framework of non-detailed balance Ho\\v{r}ava-Lifshitz cosmology within an effective model of QCD. We consider a flat Friedmann-Robertson-Walker Universe filled with a non-causal and causal bulk viscous cosmological fluid respectively and investigate the effects of the running coupling constants of Ho\\v{r}ava-Lifshitz gravity, $\\lambda$, on the evolution of the physical quantities relevant to a description of the early universe, namely, the temperature $T$, scale factor $a$, deceleration parameter $q$ and dimensionless ratio of the bulk viscosity coefficient to entropy density $\\frac{\\xi}{s}$. We assume that the bulk viscosity cosmological background fluid obeys the evolution equation of the steady truncated (Eckart) and full version of the Israel-Stewart fluid, respectively.

Negative-parity states and {beta} decays in odd Ho and Dy nuclei with A=151,153  

SciTech Connect

We investigated the negative-parity states and electromagnetic transitions in {sup 151,153}Ho and {sup 151,153}Dy within the framework of the interacting boson fermion model 2 (IBFM-2). Spin assignments for some states with uncertain spin are made based on this calculation. Calculated excitation energies, electromagnetic transitions, and branching ratios are compared with available experimental data and a good agreement is obtained. The model wave functions were used to study {beta} decays from Ho to Dy isotones, and the calculated logft values are close to the experimental data.

Conifer introductions decrease richness and alter composition of litter-dwelling beetles (Coleoptera) in Carpathian oak forests  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Original oak (Quercus) forests in the southwestern Carpathian Mountains, Slovakia, were replaced by non-forest cover or managed stands often containing introduced non-native tree species. We compared the composition, richness, and abundance of litter-dwelling beetle (Coleoptera) communities in 30 stands across three management types: (i) reserved stands that most closely approximate the pre-clearance oak forest, (ii) managed stands of local tree species, and (iii) managed stands with introduced tree species. We collected beetle adults using a dry sieve method from litter collected monthly at eight randomly placed 25cmנ25cm subplots on each plot during the 2004 growing season (giving a total of 1680 samples). Overall, we recorded a total of 1291 individuals belonging to 143 species. Managed stands had different coleopteran composition, and lower total richness and abundance, than reserved stands; these differences were more pronounced in managed stands with introduced tree species. However, coleopteran richness varied with overstory composition; while managed stands dominated by oak did not differ from reserved stands, those dominated by introduced Picea abies were least species rich. Predators and saprophages showed contrasting patterns; predators were more sensitive to forest management than saprophages in terms of species richness, but saprophages were more sensitive in terms of abundance. Both richness and abundance tended to gradually decrease as the originally dominant oak was replaced by conifers. Our results suggest that maintaining the original overstory composition in managed forests, and setting aside forest reserves, can preserve litter-dwelling beetle communities typical of oak forests in the western Carpathians.

THE HOMOGENEOUS STUDY OF TRANSITING SYSTEMS (HoSTS). I. THE PILOT STUDY OF WASP-13  

SciTech Connect

We present the fundamental stellar and planetary properties of the transiting planetary system WASP-13 within the framework of the Homogeneous Study of Transiting Systems (HoSTS). HoSTS aims to derive the fundamental stellar (T{sub eff}, [Fe/H], M{sub *}, R{sub *}) and planetary (M{sub pl}, R{sub pl}, T{sub eq}) physical properties of known transiting planets using a consistent methodology and homogeneous high-quality data set. Four spectral analysis techniques are independently applied to a Keck+HIRES spectrum of WASP-13 considering two distinct cases: unconstrained parameters and constrained log g from transit light curves. We check the derived stellar temperature against that from a different temperature diagnostic based on an INT+IDS H{alpha} spectrum. The four unconstrained analyses render results that are in good agreement, and provide an improvement of 50% in the precision of T{sub eff}, and of 85% in [Fe/H] with respect to the WASP-13 discovery paper. The planetary parameters are then derived via the Monte Carlo Markov Chain modeling of the radial velocity and light curves, in iteration with stellar evolutionary models to derive realistic uncertainties. WASP-13 (1.187 {+-} 0.065 M{sub Sun }; 1.574 {+-} 0.048 R{sub Sun }) hosts a Saturn-mass, transiting planet (0.500 {+-} 0.037 M{sub Jup}; 1.407 {+-} 0.052 R{sub Jup}), and is at the end of its main-sequence lifetime (4-5.5 Gyr). Our analysis of WASP-13 showcases that both a detailed stellar characterization and transit modeling are necessary to well determine the fundamental properties of planetary systems, which are paramount in identifying and determining empirical relationships between transiting planets and their hosts.

HOLMES - The Electron Capture Decay of 163Ho to Measure the Electron Neutrino Mass with sub-eV sensitivity  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The European Research Council has recently funded HOLMES, a new experiment to directly measure the neutrino mass. HOLMES will perform a calorimetric measurement of the energy released in the decay of 163Ho. The calorimetric measurement eliminates systematic uncertainties arising from the use of external beta sources, as in experiments with beta spectrometers. This measurement was proposed in 1982 by A. De Rujula and M. Lusignoli, but only recently the detector technological progress allowed to design a sensitive experiment. HOLMES will deploy a large array of low temperature microcalorimeters with implanted 163Ho nuclei. The resulting mass sensitivity will be as low as 0.4 eV. HOLMES will be an important step forward in the direct neutrino mass measurement with a calorimetric approach as an alternative to spectrometry. It will also establish the potential of this approach to extend the sensitivity down to 0.1 eV. We outline here the project with its technical challenges and perspectives.

Holographic energy density on Ho\\v{r}ava-Lifshitz cosmology  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

In Ho\\v{r}ava-Lifshitz cosmology we use the holographic Ricci-like cut-off for the energy density proposed by L. N. Granda and A. Oliveros and under this framework we study, through the cosmic evolution at late times, the sign change in the amount of non-conservation energy ($Q$) present in this cosmology. We revise the early stage (curvature-dependent) of this cosmology, where a term reminiscent of stiff matter is the dominant, and in this stage we find a power-law solution for the cosmic scale factor although $\\omega =-1$. Late and early phantom schemes are obtained without requiring $\\omega <-1$. Nevertheless, these schemes are not feasible according to what is shown in this paper. We also show that $ \\omega =-1$ alone does not imply a de Sitter phase in the present cosmology. Thermal aspects are revised by considering the energy interchange between the bulk and the spacetime boundary and we conclude that there is no thermal equilibrium between them. Finally, a ghost scalar graviton (extra degree of fre...

Angular dependence of metamagnetic transitions in HoNi{sub 2}B{sub 2}C  

SciTech Connect

Detailed measurements of M(2 K, H, {theta}) of HoNi{sub 2}B{sub 2}C, where {theta} is the angle that the applied field H makes with the [110] axis while remaining perpendicular to the crystallographic c axis, reveal three metamagnetic transitions with angular dependences H{sub c1}=(4.1{plus_minus}0.1 kG)/cos({theta}), H{sub c2}=8.4{plus_minus}0.2 kG/cos({phi}), and H{sub c3}=(6.6{plus_minus}0.2 kG)/sin({phi}), where {phi}={theta}{minus}45 is the angle from the [100] axis. The high-field saturated moment, M{sub sat}{approx}10{mu}{sub B}cos{theta} is consistent with the local moments being confined to the [110] direction. The locally saturated moments for fields between H{sub ci} (i=1,2,3) also manifest angular dependences that are consistent with combinations of local moments along [110] axes. Analysis of these data lead us to infer that the net distribution of moments is ({up_arrow}{down_arrow}{up_arrow}{down_arrow}{up_arrow}{down_arrow}) for H{lt}H{sub c1}, ({up_arrow}{up_arrow}{down_arrow}{up_arrow}{up_arrow}{down_arrow}) for H{sub c1}{lt}H{lt}H{sub c2}, ({up_arrow}{up_arrow}{r_arrow}{up_arrow}{up_arrow}{r_arrow}) for H{sub c2}{lt}H{lt}H{sub c3}, and ({up_arrow}{up_arrow}{up_arrow}{up_arrow}{up_arrow}{up_arrow}) for H{gt}H{sub c3}. {copyright} {ital 1997} {ital The American Physical Society}

Energy transfer characteristics of silicate glass doped with Er{sup 3+}, Tm{sup 3+}, and Ho{sup 3+} for ?2 ?m emission  

SciTech Connect

A Er{sup 3+}/Tm{sup 3+}/Ho{sup 3+} tri-doped silicate glass with good thermal stability is prepared by melt-quenching method. Efficient ?2 ?m emission is observed under 808 nm laser excitation. It is found that the 2.0 ?m emission of Ho{sup 3+} can be enhanced under the excitation at 808 nm by incorporating Er{sup 3+} and Tm{sup 3+}. Based on the measurement of absorption spectra, the JuddOfelt intensity parameters, radiation emission probability, and branching ratio are calculated to evaluate the spectroscopic properties simultaneously. The maximum value of emission cross section of Ho{sup 3+} is 3.54 10{sup ?21} cm{sup 2} at 2008 nm. Additionally, the phonon assistance and the micro-parameters in the energy transfer process are quantitatively analyzed by using Dexter model. The energy transfer coefficient from Tm{sup 3+} to Ho{sup 3+} can reach as high as 21.44 10{sup ?40} cm{sup 6}/s, respectively. The emission property together with good thermal property indicates that Er{sup 3+}/Tm{sup 3+}/Ho{sup 3+} tri-doped silicate glass is a potential kind of laser glass for efficient 2 ?m laser.

A graphene-based passively Q-switched Ho:YAG laser in-band pumped by a diode-pumped Tm:YLF solid-state laser  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We report the first demonstration of a Ho:YAG (yttrium aluminum garnet) solid-state laser passively Q-switched via a graphene saturable absorber. The Ho:YAG laser was in-band pumped by a continuous wave diode-pumped Tm:YLF (yttrium lithium fluoride) laser. Double-layer graphene grown by chemical vapor deposition and transferred onto a thin quartz plate was fabricated as the saturable absorber. We observed basically stable Q-switched laser pulses at the center wavelength of 2096.5nm with the shortest pulse width of 632ns, a repetition rate of 43kHz, and the single-pulse energy of 13.3?J. Our results illustrate that graphene can be used well as a saturable absorber in a Ho-doped solid-state laser at 2?m wavelength.

Cosmological QCD phase transition in steady non-equilibrium dissipative Ho\\v{r}ava-Lifshitz early universe  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We study the phase transition from quark-gluon plasma to hadrons in the early universe in the context of non-equilibrium thermodynamics. According to the standard model of cosmology, a phase transition associated with chiral symmetry breaking after the electro-weak transition has occurred when the universe was about $1-10\\mu s$ old. We focus attention on such a phase transition in the presence of a viscous relativistic cosmological background fluid in the framework of non-detailed balance Ho\\v{r}ava-Lifshitz cosmology within an effective model of QCD. We consider a flat Friedmann-Robertson-Walker Universe filled with a non-causal and causal bulk viscous cosmological fluid respectively and investigate the effects of the running coupling constants of Ho\\v{r}ava-Lifshitz gravity, $\\lambda$, on the evolution of the physical quantities relevant to a description of the early universe, namely, the temperature $T$, scale factor $a$, deceleration parameter $q$ and dimensionless ratio of the bulk viscosity coefficient ...

Time-Resolved Quantitative Measurement of OH HO2 and CH2O in Fuel Oxidation Reactions by High Resolution IR Absorption Spectroscopy.  

SciTech Connect

Combined with a Herriott-type multi-pass slow flow reactor, high-resolution differential direct absorption spectroscopy has been used to probe, in situ and quantitatively, hydroxyl (OH), hydroperoxy (HO 2 ) and formaldehyde (CH 2 O) molecules in fuel oxidation reactions in the reactor, with a time resolution of about 1 micro-second. While OH and CH 2 O are probed in the mid-infrared (MIR) region near 2870nm and 3574nm respectively, HO 2 can be probed in both regions: near-infrared (NIR) at 1509nm and MIR at 2870nm. Typical sensitivities are on the order of 10 10 - 10 11 molecule cm -3 for OH at 2870nm, 10 11 molecule cm -3 for HO 2 at 1509nm, and 10 11 molecule cm -3 for CH 2 O at 3574nm. Measurements of multiple important intermediates (OH and HO 2 ) and product (CH 2 O) facilitate to understand and further validate chemical mechanisms of fuel oxidation chemistry.

Atmospheric chemistry of HFC-134a. Kinetic and mechanistic study of the CF[sub 3]CFHO[sub 2] + HO[sub 2] reaction  

SciTech Connect

Rate constant measurements for the title reaction and for F + CF[sub 3]CFH[sub 2] are reported over the 210-363 K temperature range. Reacting mixtures of CF[sub 3]CFHO[sub 2] and HO[sub 2] radicals are created by the flash photolysis of F[sub 2] in the presence of HFC-134a (CF[sub 3]CFH[sub 2]), H[sub 2], and O[sub 2] and are probed by time-resolved UV absorption spectroscopy. The deconvolution of spectra taken at various delay times provides concentration versus time profiles for the respective radical species. A comparison of the initial CF[sub 3]CFHO[sub 2] and HO[sub 2] concentrations yields a relative rate determination of k[sub 1] = (9.8[sub [minus]5][sup +9]) x 10[sup [minus]11]e[sup (1130[+-]190)/T] cm[sup 3] s[sup [minus]1] for the F + CF[sub 3]CFH[sub 2] rate constant. A simultaneous fit of the radical decay curves to a mechanism containing the known HO[sub 2] self-reaction kinetics, the previously determined CF[sub 3]CFHO[sub 2] self-reaction mechanism, and a cross reaction between these species yields a rate constant of k[sub 7] = (1.8[sub [minus]1.0][sup +2.4]) x 10[sup [minus]13]e[sup (910[+-]220)/T] cm[sup 3] s[sup [minus]1] for the HO[sub 2] + CF[sub 3]CFHO[sub 2] reaction. A product study at 296 K by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy reveals that less than 5% of the product appears as CF[sub 3]C(O)F. By inference >95% of the reaction gives the hydroperoxide CF[sub 3]CFHOOH. 34 refs., 7 figs., 4 tabs.

Measurements of line strengths in the HO sub 2. nu. sub 1 overtone band at 1. 5. mu. m using an InGaAsP laser  

SciTech Connect

The hydroperoxyl radical, HO{sub 2}, is a pivotal atmospheric species, being closely coupled to OH, the most important oxidant in both tropospheric and stratospheric chemistry. The authors report the first observation of resolved rotational-vibrational overtone (2{nu}{sub 1}) absorptions of the hydroperoxyl radical (HO{sub 2}) in the 1.5-{mu}m region, using two-tone frequency modulation spectroscopy (TTFMS) with an InGaAsP laser diode and White-cell optics. Photolysis of Cl{sub 2}/H{sub 2}O{sub 2} mixtures was used to produce the HO{sub 2}, and the concentration was determined by modulated-photolysis UV absorption spectroscopy. The line center adsorption cross sections for the strongest lines ranged between 1.3 {times} 10{sup {minus}20} and 10 {times} 10{sup {minus}20} cm{sup 2} molecule{sup {minus}1} under Doppler-limited conditions. For the strongest line this corresponds to an integrated line strength S of 1.6 {times} 10{sup {minus}21} cm{sup 2} molecule{sup {minus}1} cm{sup {minus}1}, a line strength of the same order of magnitude as lines previously observed in the relatively weak {nu}{sub 1} fundamental.

New line classifications in Ho I based on high-precision hyperfine-structure measurement of low levels  

SciTech Connect

Doppler-free laser-fluorescence and laser-rf double-resonance studies have been made of the hyperfine structure (hfs) of four strong, previously unclassified visible lines in Ho I; all are shown to connect with low levels. The hfs of the 4f/sup 11/6s/sup 2/ /sup 4/I/sub 11/2,9/2/ levels is measured in detail, allowing evaluation of the dipole (a/sup 01/, a/sup 12/, a/sup 10/) and quadrupole (b/sup 02/,b/sup 11/,b/sup 13/) hfs radial integrals. The results are in close agreement with the ab initio values of Lindgren and Rosen (Case Stud. Atom. Phys. 4, 93--292 (1974). The value found for b/sup 02/ in the 4f/sup 11/6s/sup 2/ configuration is in reasonable agreement with that of Wyart and Camus (Physica 93C, 227-236 (1978)), thereby confirming their finding of a substantial dependence of this parameter on the number of 4f electrons in the core.

Epigallocatechin gallate supplementation protects against renal injury induced by fluoride intoxication in rats: Role of Nrf2/HO-1 signaling  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Fluoride intoxication generates free radicals, causing oxidative stress that plays a critical role in the progression of nephropathy. In the present study, we hypothesized that epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), found in green tea, protects the kidneys of rats treated with fluoride by preventing oxidative stress, inflammation, and apoptosis. Pretreatment of fluoride-treated rats with EGCG resulted in a significant normalization of creatinine clearance and levels of urea, uric acid, and creatinine. Fluoride intoxication significantly increased renal oxidative stress markers and decreased the levels of renal enzymatic and non-enzymatic antioxidants. In addition, renal NO, TNF-?, IL-6 and NF-?B were also increased in the renal tissue of fluoride-treated rats. Further, EGCG pretreatment produced a significant improvement in renal antioxidant status and reduced lipid peroxidation, protein carbonylation and the levels of inflammatory markers in fluoride-treated kidney. Similarly, mRNA and protein analyses showed that EGCG pretreatment normalized the renal expression of Nrf2/Keap1 and its downstream regulatory proteins in fluoride-treated rat kidney. EGCG also effectively attenuated fluoride-induced renal apoptosis by the up-regulation of anti-apoptotic proteins such as Bcl-2 and down-regulation of Bax, caspase-3, caspase-9 and cytochrome c. Histology and immunohistochemical observations of Kim-1 provided further evidence that EGCG effectively protects the kidney from fluoride-mediated oxidative damage. These results suggest that EGCG ameliorates fluoride-induced oxidative renal injury by activation of the Nrf2/HO-1 pathway.

The temperature dependence of the reaction between hydroperoxy and methylperoxy radicals was measured in a flash photolysis ultraviolet absorption apparatus over the temperature range 228-380 K: HO/sub 2/ + CH/sub 3/O/sub 2/ ..-->.. CH/sub 3/O/sub 2/H + O/sub 2/ (1). The data, represented by the Arrhenius expression k/sub 1/ = (3.0 +/- 1.2) x 10/sup -13/ exp((720 +/- 100)/T) cm/sup 3/ molecule/sup -1/ s/sup -1/, are compared to earlier results and discussed in terms of the reaction mechanism. Due to overlapping absorptions of the two radicals and deviations of the complex reaction system from both pseudo-first-order and pseudo-second-order behavior, the rate constants were determined from a detailed modeling of the radical decay curves. A sensitivity analysis of the rate constant determination procedure to the assumed radical absorption cross sections and correlated changes in the rate constants for the HO/sub 2/ and CH/sub 3/O/sub 2/ self-reactions was performed, and the results are reported. The present results were also used to assess the effects of secondary chemistry in the authors measurements of the temperature dependence of the rate constant of the CH/sub 3/O/sub 2/ + CH/sub 3/O/sub 2/ reaction, and the revised Arrhenius parameters are presented.

Investigation of relaxation phenomena in high-temperature superconductors HoBa2Cu3O7-d at the action of pulsed magnetic fields  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

It is used the mechanical method of Abrikosov vortex stimulated dynamics investigation in superconductors. With its help it was studied relaxation phenomena in vortex matter of high-temperature superconductors. It established that pulsed magnetic fields change the course of relaxation processes taking place in vortex matter. The study of the influence of magnetic pulses differing by their durations and amplitudes on vortex system of isotropic high-temperature superconductors system HoBa2Cu3O7-d showed the presence of threshold phenomena. The small duration pulses does not change the course of relaxation processes taking place in vortex matter. When the duration of pulses exceeds some critical value (threshold), then their influence change the course of relaxation process which is revealed by stepwise change of relaxing mechanical moment . These investigations showed that the time for formatting of Abrikosov vortex lattice in HoBa2Cu3O7-d is of the order of 20 microsec. which on the order of value exceeds the time necessary for formation of a single vortex observed in type II superconductors.

Experimental cross sections of 165Ho(?,n)168Tm and 166Er(?,n)169Yb for optical potential studies relevant for the astrophysical ?-process  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Background: Optical potentials are crucial ingredients for the prediction of nuclear reaction rates needed in simulations of the astrophysical \\gamma-process. Associated uncertainties are particularly large for reactions involving \\alpha-particles. This includes (\\gamma,\\alpha) reactions which are of special importance in the \\gamma-process. Purpose: The measurement of (\\alpha,n) reactions allows for an optimization of currently used \\alpha-nucleus potentials. The reactions 165Ho(\\alpha,n) and 166Er(\\alpha,n) probe the optical model in a mass region where \\gamma-process calculations exhibit an underproduction of p nuclei which is not yet understood. Method: To investigate the energy-dependent cross sections of the reactions 165Ho(\\alpha,n) and 166Er(\\alpha,n) close to the reaction threshold, self-supporting metallic foils were irradiated with \\alpha-particles using the FN tandem Van de Graaff accelerator at University of Notre Dame. The induced activity was determined afterwards by monitoring the specific \\beta-decay channels. Results: Hauser-Feshbach predictions with a widely used global \\alpha-potential describe the data well at energies where the cross sections are almost exclusively sensitive to the \\alpha-widths. Increasing discrepancies appear towards the reaction threshold at lower energy. Conclusions: The tested global \\alpha-potential is suitable at energies above 14 MeV, while a modification seems necessary close to the reaction threshold. Since the \\gamma- and neutron width show non-negligible impact on the predictions, complementary data are required to judge whether or not the discrepancies found can to be solely assigned to the \\alpha-width.

Massachusetts multi-family passive solar housing program  

SciTech Connect

A unique combination of Federal, State, and Local resources and initiative is producing energy-efficient/passive solar elderly housing in Massachusetts. The program, developed at and managed by the Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy Resources, is using $2.5 million of state energy bonding authority to finance incremental costs of energy conservation and passive solar features in state-financed local housing projects. The design and technical assistance, incremental cost estimating, and public outreach portions of the program have been made possible under a grant from the US Department of Energy (through NESEC) as part of the Solar Cities Program. The program includes both new projects and retrofits, with building types ranging from mid-rise, high density urban structures to two-story suburban townhouses. Seventeen project, including over 400 passive solar units, are in working drawings or out to bid and more are in concept development. It is anticipated that present funding will ultimately permit construction of as many as 800 passive solar heated apartments. On the average, these projects will use only 25% of the energy required to heat a similar building of conventional design.

Optical amplification in disordered electrooptic Tm{sup 3+} and Ho{sup 3+} codoped lanthanum-modified lead zirconate titanate ceramics and study of spectroscopy and communication between cations  

SciTech Connect

Rare earth doped electro-optic (EO) ceramics of lanthanum-modified lead zirconate titanate (PLZT) are promising in building multifunctional optical devices, by taking advantage of both EO effect and optical activity. In this work, the combination of the measured spectra of absorption and photoluminescence, the fluorescent decay, the calculated Judd-Ofelt parameters, and measured single pass gain in Tm{sup 3+}, Ho{sup 3+} codoped PLZT ceramics have marked them out as promising gain media in building electrically controllable lasers/optical amplifiers and other multifunctional devices. Optical energy storage was also observed in the optical amplification dynamics.

Initiation in H{sub 2}/O{sub 2}: Rate constants for H{sub 2} + O{sub 2} {yields} H + HO{sub 2} at high temperature  

SciTech Connect

The reaction between H{sub 2} and O{sub 2} has been studied in a reflected shock tube apparatus between 1662--2097 K. O-atom atomic resonance absorption spectrometry (ARAS) was used to observe absolute [O]{sub t} under conditions of low [H{sub 2}]{sub 0} so that most secondary reactions were negligible. Hence, the observed [O]{sub t}, was the direct result of the rate controlling reaction between H{sub 2} and O{sub 2}. Three different reactions were considered, but experimental and ab initio theoretical results both indicated that the process, H{sub 2} + O{sub 2} {yields} H + HO{sub 2}, is the only possible reaction. After rapid HO{sub 2} dissociation, O-atoms are then instantaneously produced by H + O{sub 2} {yields} O + OH. Using the ab initio result, conventional transition state theoretical calculations (CTST) with tunneling corrections give the expression: k = 1.228 x 10{sup {minus}18} T{sup 2.4328} exp({minus}26926 K/T) cm{sup 3} molecule{sup {minus}1} s{sup {minus}1}, applicable between 400 and 2,300 K. This theoretical result agrees with the present experimental determinations and those at lower temperature, derived from earlier work on the reverse reaction.

Predicting Envelope Leakage in Attached Dwellings  

SciTech Connect

The most common method for measuring air leakage is to use a single blower door to pressurize and/or depressurize the test unit. In detached housing, the test unit is the entire home and the single blower door measures air leakage to the outside. In attached housing, this 'single unit', 'total', or 'solo' test method measures both the air leakage between adjacent units through common surfaces as well air leakage to the outside. Measuring and minimizing this total leakage is recommended to avoid indoor air quality issues between units, reduce energy losses to the outside, reduce pressure differentials between units, and control stack effect. However, two significant limitations of the total leakage measurement in attached housing are: for retrofit work, if total leakage is assumed to be all to the outside, the energy benefits of air sealing can be significantly over predicted; for new construction, the total leakage values may result in failing to meet an energy-based house tightness program criterion. The scope of this research is to investigate an approach for developing a viable simplified algorithm that can be used by contractors to assess energy efficiency program qualification and/or compliance based upon solo test results.

Flash photolysis kinetic absorption spectroscopy study of the gas-phase reaction HO/sub 2/ + C/sub 2/H/sub 5/O/sub 2/ over the temperature range 228-380 K  

SciTech Connect

Flash photolysis kinetic absorption spectroscopy was used to investigate the gas-phase reaction between hydroperoxy and ethylperoxy radicals between 228 and 380 K in the pressure range 25-400 Torr: HO/sub 2/ + C/sub 2/H/sub 5/O/sub 2/ ..-->.. products (1). Due to the large difference between the self-reactivities of the two radicals, first- or second-order kinetic conditions could not be maintained for either species. Thus, the rate constant for reaction 1 was determined from computer-modeled fits of the radical absorption decay curves recorded at wavelengths between 230 and 280 nm. This procedure yielded a value for k/sub 1/ at 298 K of (5.3 +/- 1.0) x 10/sup -12/ cm/sup 3/ molecule/sup -1/ s/sup -1/ independent of total pressure (using N/sub 2/) between 25 and 400 Torr. The Arrhenius expression derived from the present study over the temperature range 248-380 K is k/sub 1/ = (5.6 +/- 2.4) x 10/sup -13/ exp((650 +/- 125)/T) cm/sup 3/ molecule/sup -1/ s/sup -1/, where the quoted errors are 2 sigma from linear least-squares analyses. A reanalysis of the authors earlier measurements of the C/sub 2/H/sub 5/O/sub 2/ self-reaction, C/sub 2/H/sub 5/O/sub 2/ + C/sub 2/H/sub 5/O/sub 2/ ..-->.. products (2), using this expression for k/sub 1/ results in the revised Arrhenius equation: k/sub 2/ = (8.5 +/- 1.1) x 10/sup -14/ exp(-(110 +/- 40)/T) cm/sup 3/ molecule/sup -1/ s/sup -1/.

Graphical abstract: Mssbauer spectra taken at 200 K for the Y(V{sub 0.5}Fe{sub 0.5})O{sub 3} orthoferrivanadate synthesized by arc-melting. Highlights: ? LnFe{sub 0.5}V{sub 0.5}O{sub 3} were synthesized by the first time for most of the rare-earth elements. ? These orthoferrivanadates crystallize metastably with the perovskite structure. ? Iron and vanadium are trivalent stabilized in these solid solutions. ? The Mssbauer quadrupolar splitting is correlated with the tolerance factor. ? Below 100 K, these perovskites undergo a crystallographic phase transformation. -- Abstract: Perovskites LnV{sub 0.5}Fe{sub 0.5}O{sub 3} (Ln = Y, La, Ce, Pr, Nd, Sm, Eu, Gd, Tb, Dy, Ho and Er) were synthesized by rapid solidification from arc-melted samples and characterized by the study of their crystal structure and hyperfine properties. These metastable solid solutions crystallized in the Pbnm symmetry, with the iron and vanadium cations randomly distributed in the transition metal octahedral sites. Depending on the lanthanide present at the A site of the perovskite, iron is present with two valences (i.e., Fe{sup 3+} and Fe{sup 2+}). The volume of the unit cell for these perovskites increases linearly with the lanthanide ionic radius, as the perovskite approaches its ideal structure. At room temperature, the quadrupolar splitting of the trivalent paramagnetic Mssbauer component works as an indirect measurement for the Goldshmidt tolerance factor. Close to or below 100 K, these perovskites undergo a crystallographic phase transformation, probably due to orbital ordering of the V{sup 3+} cations, originating two different magnetic iron sites.

SciTech Connect

This report documents the development of the proposed revision of the council of American Building Officials' (CABO) 1993 supplement to the 1992 Model Energy Code (MEC) (referred to as the 1993 MEC) building thermal envelope requirements for single-family and low-rise multifamily residences. The goal of this analysis was to develop revised guidelines based on an objective methodology that determined the most cost-effective (least total life-cycle cost [LCC]) combination of energy conservation measures (ECMs) for residences in different locations. The ECMs with the lowest LCC were used as a basis for proposing revised MEC maximum U[sub o]-value (thermal transmittance) curves in the MEC format. The changes proposed here affect the requirements for group R'' residences. The group R residences are detached one- and two-family dwellings (referred to as single-family) and all other residential buildings three stories or less (referred to as multifamily).

Hydronic Heating Retrofits for Low-Rise Multifamily Buildings: Boiler Control Replacement and Monitoring  

SciTech Connect

The ARIES Collaborative, a U.S. Department of Energy Building America research team, partnered with NeighborWorks America affiliate Homeowners' Rehab Inc. (HRI) of Cambridge, Massachusetts, to study improvements to the central hydronic heating system in one of the nonprofit's housing developments. The heating controls in the three-building, 42-unit Columbia Cambridge Alliance for Spanish Tenants housing development were upgraded. Fuel use in the development was excessive compared to similar properties. A poorly insulated thermal envelope contributed to high energy bills, but adding wall insulation was not cost-effective or practical. The more cost-effective option was improving heating system efficiency. Efficient operation of the heating system faced several obstacles, including inflexible boiler controls and failed thermostatic radiator valves. Boiler controls were replaced with systems that offer temperature setbacks and one that controls heat based on apartment temperature in addition to outdoor temperature. Utility bill analysis shows that post-retrofit weather-normalized heating energy use was reduced by 10%-31% (average of 19%). Indoor temperature cutoff reduced boiler runtime (and therefore heating fuel consumption) by 28% in the one building in which it was implemented. Nearly all savings were obtained during night which had a lower indoor temperature cut off (68 degrees F) than day (73 degrees F). This implies that the outdoor reset curve was appropriately adjusted for this building for daytime operation. Nighttime setback of heating system supply water temperature had no discernable impact on boiler runtime or gas bills.

Catalog of thermal bridges in commercial and multi-family residential construction  

SciTech Connect

The catalog comprises a collection of 21 thermal bridges commonly encountered in commercial buildings, as well as alternative construction techniques which reduce the deleterious effects of these bridges. The thermal bridges presented here are conduction-dominated. Construction details which transfer heat mostly through convection or radiation are not addressed. The benefits of the alternate designs are expressed for each thermal bridge as (1) reductions in U-values and (2) reductions in moisture condensation. These reductions, in turn, are extrapolated at the whole building level in order to predict changes in the energy used for space heating and cooling and to estimate changes in the magnitude of the surface areas affected by moisture condensation. Finally, technical notes address the probable effects (thermal and moisture) of minor variations in the construction details presented in this catalog. The technical notes also give a more detailed prediction of the potential for moisture condensation due to thermal bridging.

Steam System Balancing and Tuning for Multifamily Residential Buildings in Chicagoland - Second Year of Data Collection  

SciTech Connect

Steam heated buildings often suffer from uneven heating as a result of poor control of the amount of steam entering each radiator. In order to satisfy the heating load to the coldest units, other units are overheated. As a result, some tenants complain of being too hot and open their windows in the middle of winter, while others complain of being too cold and are compelled to use supplemental heat sources. Building on previous research, CNT Energy identified 10 test buildings in Chicago and conducted a study to identify best practices for the methodology, typical costs, and energy savings associated with steam system balancing. A package of common steam balancing measures was assembled and data were collected on the buildings before and after these retrofits were installed to investigate the process, challenges, and the cost effectiveness of improving steam systems through improved venting and control systems. The test buildings that received venting upgrades and new control systems showed 10.2% savings on their natural gas heating load, with a simple payback of 5.1 years. The methodologies for and findings from this study are presented in detail in this report. This report has been updated from a version published in August 2012 to include natural gas usage information from the 2012 heating season and updated natural gas savings calculations.

Predicting Envelope Leakage in Attached Dwellings (Fact Sheet)  

SciTech Connect

The most common method of measuring air leakage is to perform single (or solo) blower door pressurization and/or depressurization test. In detached housing, the single blower door test measures leakage to the outside. In attached housing, however, this "solo" test method measures both air leakage to the outside and air leakage between adjacent units through common surfaces. Although minimizing leakage to neighboring units is highly recommended to avoid indoor air quality issues between units, reduce pressure differentials between units, and control stack effect, the energy benefits of air sealing can be significantly overpredicted if the solo air leakage number is used in the energy analysis. Guarded blower door testing is more appropriate for isolating and measuring leakage to the outside in attached housing. This method uses multiple blower doors to depressurize adjacent spaces to the same level as the unit being tested. Maintaining a neutral pressure across common walls, ceilings, and floors acts as a "guard" against air leakage between units. The resulting measured air leakage in the test unit is only air leakage to the outside. Although preferred for assessing energy impacts, the challenges of performing guarded testing can be daunting.

Winter energy behaviour in multi-family block buildings in a temperate-cold climate in Argentina  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This paper analyzes the thermal and energy behaviour of apartments in three-story block buildings located along a NE-SW axis (azimuth=120) in a temperate-cold climate (latitude: 3657?; longitude: 6427?) in the city of Santa Rosa, La Pampa, central Argentina. Four apartments had been monitored during May and June 2009. Three of them are located in Block 126. Two of these apartments face South: 15 and 23 on the SE end, ground and first floor, respectively; 18 faces N on the second floor. Finally apartment, 12 is located in Block 374, on the first floor, faces N and shows a carpentry-closed balcony. The purpose of this work is to study the evolution of the indoor temperature in each apartment; to analyze energy consumption and comfort conditions; to study energy potential and energy intervention in order to reduce energy consumption; to analyze bioclimatic alternatives feasibility and the possibility to extrapolate results to all blocks. On the basis of the analysis of natural gas historical consumption records, results showed that regarding heating energy consumption during the period MayJune, Apartment 12, facing N, with its only bedroom facing NW and its carpentry-closed, transparent glass balcony, presented a mean temperature of 21.2C, using a halogen heater for 6h/day between 9pm and 2am (0.16kWh/day/m2). Apartment 15, on the SE end, first floor of the block consumed 22.5kWh/day (0.43kWh/day/m2) (mean temperature=22.2C). Apartment 23, located on the second and top floor (on top of Apartment 15) with higher energy loss, consumed 28kWh/day (0.54kWh/day/m2) (mean temperature=23.7C). Apartment 18, also on the second floor and facing N, located in the centre and with its only bedroom facing SE, consumed 18.8kWh/day (0.48kWh/day/m2) (mean temperature=22.3C). Apartment 23, with higher thermal loss through its envelope, but with heat transfer from the apartment located below, is the one that showed the highest level of consumption/m2. Closing the balcony with carpentry produced an important reduction of energy consumption while reaching comfort conditions. The analysis of the experimental results allowed: (a) to determine through analysis of historical consumption of natural gas prior to the year 2009 that the owner lived under conditions of comfort, (b) to evaluate possible interventions in the building that would lead to saving heating energy. Thermal insulation of roof and envelope appears as the most feasible alternative whereas closing balconies constitute a very good design option in winter.

Solar System tests of Ho?ava-Lifshitz black holes  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

In the present paper we consider the possibility of observationally testing Horava gravity at the scale of the Solar System, by considering the classical tests of general relativity (perihelion precession of the planet Mercury, deflection of light by the Sun and the radar echo delay) for the Kehagias-Sfetsos asymptotically flat black hole solution of Horava-Lifshitz gravity. All these gravitational effects can be fully explained in the framework of the vacuum solution of Horava gravity, and it is shown that the analysis of the classical general relativistic tests severely constrain the free parameter of the solution.

Old mills, new condos; sound isolation in mill building conversion projects  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Up and down the New England Coast century?old mill buildings are being converted into condominium and apartment buildings amidst one of the biggest housing booms in recent memory. While the inherent acoustical conflicts in multi?family dwelling are not new (oft?cited HUD guidelines are approaching their 40th birthday) the flood of mill conversions is bringing to light a number of new constructions that architects use to chop former factories into discrete living spaces. This paper will present field?collected data and case studies that illustrate some of the problems and common pitfalls associated with mill building conversion projects. Among the construction details discussed include exposed timber ceilings that run continuously across gypsum board partitions the creative reuse of existing brick walls and some acoustical properties of wood deck construction common to many mill buildings.

Energy Saving Alignment Strategy: Achieving energy efficiency in urban buildings by matching occupant temperature preferences with a buildings indoor thermal environment  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Existing strategies for residential energy savings through physical renovation or motivating occupant energy conservation behavior can be costly and/or have transitory effects. Focusing on multi-family dwellings, an important subset of the urban residential sector, we propose an Energy Saving Alignment Strategy (ESAS) that has advantageous cost-effectiveness and a long-lasting influence. By aligning the distribution of residents thermostat preferences with the indoor temperature, ESAS aims to maximize thermal comfort and, accordingly, energy savings in multi-family buildings where indoor temperatures vary between apartments as a function of apartment orientation and floor level. Using a case study of a 1084-apartment public housing complex in New York, we classify both occupants thermostat preferences and apartments operative temperatures into five groups, and optimize energy efficiency by assigning each group of occupants to the group of apartments that best aligns with their thermostat preference. We test ESAS in eight cities representing all four U.S. census regions and six climate zones. Simulation results reveal 2.142.0% in energy savings compared to random apartment assignments depending on geographic location, with the highest energy reductions occurring in cities with mild climates, where the range of occupant thermostat preferences coincides with the natural indoor temperature range. We conclude by providing suggested guidelines on how ESAS might work in practice, and recommendations for extending ESAS research.

On the Estimation of Detection Probabilities for Sampling Stream-Dwelling Fishes.  

SciTech Connect

To examine the adequacy of fish probability of detection estimates, I examined distributional properties of survey and monitoring data for bull trout (Salvelinus confluentus), brook trout (Salvelinus fontinalis), westslope cutthroat trout (Oncorhynchus clarki lewisi), chinook salmon parr (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha), and steelhead /redband trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss spp.), from 178 streams in the Interior Columbia River Basin. Negative binomial dispersion parameters varied considerably among species and streams, but were significantly (P<0.05) positively related to fish density. Across streams, the variances in fish abundances differed greatly among species and indicated that the data for all species were overdispersed with respect to the Poisson (i.e., the variances exceeded the means). This significantly affected Poisson probability of detection estimates, which were the highest across species and were, on average, 3.82, 2.66, and 3.47 times greater than baseline values. Required sample sizes for species detection at the 95% confidence level were also lowest for the Poisson, which underestimated sample size requirements an average of 72% across species. Negative binomial and Poisson-gamma probability of detection and sample size estimates were more accurate than the Poisson and generally less than 10% from baseline values. My results indicate the Poisson and binomial assumptions often are violated, which results in probability of detection estimates that are biased high and sample size estimates that are biased low. To increase the accuracy of these estimates, I recommend that future studies use predictive distributions than can incorporate multiple sources of uncertainty or excess variance and that all distributional assumptions be explicitly tested.

Cognitive tasks in information analysis: Use of event dwell time to characterize component activities  

SciTech Connect

Technology-based enhancement of information analysis requires a detailed understanding of the cognitive tasks involved in the process. The information search and report production tasks of the information analysis process were investigated through evaluation of time-stamped workstation data gathered with custom software. Model tasks simulated the search and production activities, and a sample of actual analyst data were also evaluated. Task event durations were calculated on the basis of millisecond-level time stamps, and distributions were plotted for analysis. The data indicate that task event time shows a cyclic pattern of variation, with shorter event durations (< 2 sec) reflecting information search and filtering, and longer event durations (> 10 sec) reflecting information evaluation. Application of cognitive principles to the interpretation of task event time data provides a basis for developing cognitive signatures of complex activities, and can facilitate the development of technology aids for information intensive tasks.

Interaction between building design, management, household and individual factors in relation to energy use for space heating in apartment buildings  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract In Stockholm, 472 multi-family buildings with 7554 dwellings has been selected by stratified random sampling. Information about building characteristics and property management was gathered from each property owners. Energy use for space heating was collected from the utility company. Perceived thermal comfort, household and personal factors were assessed by a standardized self-administered questionnaire, answered by one adult person in each dwelling, and a proportion of each factor was calculated for each building. Statistical analysis was performed by multiple linear regression models with control for relevant factors all at the same time in the model. Energy use for heating was significantly related to the building age, type of building and ventilation, length of time since the last heating adjustment, ownership form, proportion of females, and proportion of occupants expressing thermal discomfort. How beneficial energy efficiency measures will be may depend on the relationship between energy use and factors related to the building and the property maintenance together with household and personal factors, as all these factors interact with each other. The results show that greater focus should be on real estate management and maintenance and also a need for research with a gender perspective on energy use for space heating.

AVAILABILITY OF SERVICE Available for single and three-phase single family residential service. Residential electric service is available for uses customarily associated with residential occupation, including lighting, cooking, heating, cooling, refjigeration, household appliances and other domestic purposes. Residential rates are based on service to single family units and are not applicable to multi-family dwellings served through a single meter. Where two or more families occupy a residential building, Kenergy may require, as a condition precedent to the application of the residential rate, the wiring in the building be so arranged as to permit each family to be served through a separate meter, In those cases where such segregation of Wiring would involve undue expense to the Member, at the Member's option in lieu of the foregoing, electric service rendered to.a multi-family residential building through a single meter will be classified as commercial and billed on the basis of service to a Member at an appropriate nonresidential rate. If a separate meter is used to measure the consumption to remotely located buildings, such as garages, barns, pump houses, grain bins or other outbuildings, or facilities, such as electric fences, it will be considered a separate service and be billed as a separate service at the applicable non-residential rate.

Field impact insulation class (FIIC)A case study  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Impactnoise in buildings constitutes a potentially serious problem because of the short duration high intensity sounds involved [U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Airborne Impact and Structure Borne Noise Chapter 7 (1967)]. Since 1974 the State of California has tried to manage this problem by instituting the California Noise Insulation Standards which require any multi?family dwelling to provide an impact insulation class (IIC) rating of 50 based on laboratory tests or a field impact insulation class (FIIC) rating of 45 based on field tests [Office of Noise Control California Noise Insulation Standards 17 (1988)]. Concern about the acceptability of floor ceiling assemblies is increasing due to increased awareness of the problem and larger numbers of people moving into apartments condominiums and townhomes throughout California. Western Electro?Acoustic Laboratory (WEAL) had the opportunity to witness the installation of floor ceiling assemblies in an apartment complex in Bakersfield California. Six different assemblies were tested to determine how the FIIC value changed when minor modifications were made to the standard floor ceiling assembly. WEAL will show the results of the field?tested assemblies and compare the data with typical laboratory results for similar constructions.

Model building codes and acoustical performance: Where are we in 2003?  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The proper acoustical design for multi?family dwellings is an important factor in occupant comfort. Key acoustical design practices are often not mandated by the builder or architect but by the applicable building codes. In early 2003 the three regional/national building codes agreed to join into a single unified national building code for residential and commercial construction. The scope and governance of these three codes: the Uniform Building Code (ICBO) the National Building Code (BOCA) the Southern Building Code (SBCCI) are reflected in the International Residential Code (IRC) and the International Building Code (IBC) which was developed by the International Code Council (ICC). With the move to a single code body those concerned with building acoustical performance welcome the benefit of a single minimum standard. Unfortunately this new minimum performance requirement does not reflect the state of the science for occupant satisfaction. The acoustical requirements of each of these building codes the timeline of their development and an overview of the state of the science will be presented. Suggestions for revised performance minimums will also be offered for discussion.

Sound insulation ratingsthe STC revisited  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

About twenty years ago building authorities and their acoustical experts were faced with a confusing variety of schemes for rating the sound insulation of walls and floors. There was need for a definitive rating system that would digest the 16 transmission loss values that characterize a partition and produce a single number that would describe its sound insulation performance especially in respect to multi?family dwellings. Two standards committees ISO/TC 43 and ASTM E6 (now E33) began more or less together to develop a new improved rating system to fill this need. The product of these labors was what is known in North America as the ASTM sound transmission class (STC). This rating system was so successful that it was almost universally adoptedeven in applications for which it was not intended. Despite the apparent success there is now increasing awareness of imperfections in the system. These are examined in light of accumulated data and experience to see whether the system could or should be improved by certain minor changes.

EA-1463: 10 CFR 433: Energy Efficiency Standards for New Federal Commercial and High-Rise Multi-Family Residential Buildings and 10 CFR 435: Energy Efficiency Standards for New Federal Residential Low-Rise Residential Buildings  

Energy.gov (U.S. Department of Energy (DOE))

The EA examines the potential environmental impacts of the Final Rule on building habitability and the outdoor environment. To identify the potential environmental impacts that may result from implementing the Final Rule for new Federal commercial and residential buildings, DOE compared the Final Rule with the no-action alternative of using the current Federal standards 10 CFR Part 434 and 10 CFR Part 435 Subpart C (referred to as the no-action alternative).

X-ray resonant magnetic scattering investigations of hexagonal multiferroics RMnO3 (R = Dy, Ho, Er)  

SciTech Connect

Electricity and magnetism were unified into a common subject by James Clerk Maxwell in the nineteenth century yielding the electromagnetic theory. Four equations govern the dynamics of electric charges and magnetic fields, commonly known as Maxwell's equations. Maxwell's equations demonstrate that an accelerated charged particle can produce magnetic fields and a time varying magnetic field can induce a voltage - thereby linking the two phenomena. However, in solids, electric and magnetic ordering are most often considered separately and usually with good reason: the electric charges of electrons and ions are responsible for the charge effects, whereas the electron spin governs magnetic properties.
