Bibliographic database Airbase

 

AIRBASE is the Bibliographic Database of the AIVC. It contains abstracts of articles and publications related to energy efficient ventilation. Where possible, sufficient detail is supplied in the bibliographic details for users to trace and order the material via their own libraries. Topics include

  • ventilation strategies,
  • design and retrofit methods,
  • calculation techniques
  • standards and regulations
  • measurement methods
  • indoor air quality and energy implications
 
Entries are based on articles and reports published in journals, internal publications and research reports, produced both by university departments and by building research institutions throughout the world.
 
AIRBASE has grown and evolved over many years (1979 to present day, over 20000 references and 5600 documents available online).
 
For some references, the full document is also available online (only available for subscribers).

The need for zero carbon buildings is changing the trial-and-error process that Architectural design has traditionally employed towards a system that allows wider analysis capacity at the conceptual stage.
Nelly Adriana Martinez
For testing different engineering solutions for energy-efficient buildings, a low-energy building was built at the University of Tokyo as a pilot project. In this building, a radiant heating/cooling ceiling panel system is used.
Ryozo Ooka, Rongling Li, Togo Yoshidomi and Bjarne W. Olesen
This paper analyses responses of ninety-nine students to a design brief for a public building in different regions of China.
