2006/Dec/01 467kB Technote 26: Design-orientated Wind Engineering Studies New China Central Television Headquarters Its structural design required comprehensive wind engineering studies to determine detailed wind load distributions for potentially critical load patterns.
2006/Nov/01 399kB Technote 25: Medical Cyclotrons: Evaluating Impacts to meet Air Quality Standards This Technote presents a helicopter exhaust design criterion based on odor panel testing, describes a method for dispersion modeling of the helicopter exhaust using a wind tunnel, and interprets the modeling results with a view to odor impact mitigation.
2006/Oct/01 439kB Technote 24: Modeling of Helicopter Exhaust at Emergency Health Care Facilities This Technote presents a helicopter exhaust design criterion based on odor panel testing, describes a method for dispersion modeling of the helicopter exhaust using a wind tunnel, and interprets the modeling results with a view to odor impact mitigation.
2006/Sep/01 905kB Technote 23: A Comparison Of Ventilation Performance Between Laminar Flow And High Induction Diffusers In A Tuberculosis Isolation Room The extension from this work suggests that ventilation rate analysis alone can be misleading because conditions may be calculated to be adequate for fresh air supply, when in fact the air distribution system does not remove the contaminants effectively.
2006/Aug/01 242kB Technote 22: Infectious Disease Control Issues Principles Of Isolation Room Design "Evidence from many studies leaves no doubt that hospital air quality and ventilation play decisive roles in affecting air concentrations of pathogens... and, in this way, have major effects on infection rates".
2006/Jul/01 290kB Technote 21: Seismic Protection Of Museum Artifacts Using Base Isolation In recent years, the application of base isolation has been gradually extended to smaller structures (e.g., private housing, computer servers storing valuable data and seismic protection of museum artifacts).
2006/Jun/10 RWDI Desktop Dilution Calculator A tool that can be used to approximate the dilution achieved from an exhaust to a fresh-air intake location, and can help in the placement of equipment early in the design process.
2006/Jun/01 Technote 20: Transit Station Fires Part 2 - Separation Of Exhausts And Intakes: Modeling And Solution Concepts This Technote discusses identification of problems and quantifying potential solutions.
