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).

In order to clarify the outdoor thermal comfort and clothing, the thermal measurements (air temperature) and thermal comfort survey were conducted in Hachiko Square which is located in the Shibuya station, Tokyo.
Genki Hoshino and Hom B. Rijal
The relationship between urban growth and the formation of urban heat islands, i.e.
Eduardo Krüger and Peter Bröde
Transitional spaces are the spaces influenced by the outdoor climate and yet are architecturally bounded by a building envelope.
Guoying Hou and Christopher Tweed
This paper makes the assertion that established concepts from thermal comfort research might be used to develop an adaptive comfort model for lighting.
Zoltán Nagy, Mike Hazas, Mario Frei, Dino Rossi and Arno Schlueter
It is common knowledge that occupants’ behaviour on building control systems plays a significant role to achieve comfortable indoor environmental conditions.
V. Fabi, V. Camisassi, F. Causone, SP. Corgnati and Rune Andersen
Daylighting is still the most energy efficient lighting strategy, but filtering sunlight might conflict with maximization of solar gains in winter or reducing solar heat gain in summer.
Isabelle Leysens, Ulrike Passe
This draft paper was developed as a stalking horse for the Windsor 2014 Conference workshop on Statistics, It presents the results of summer time field work undertaken by Abdulrahman Alsheikh in the region of Damman, Saudi Arabia and the data coll
Abdulrahman Alshaikh, Susan Roaf and Robert Smith
Thermal comfort studies have been performed so far either in closed climate chambers with controlled conditions or non-controlled conditions during field studies.
Marcel Schweiker, Sabine Brasche, Maren Hawighorst, Wolfgang Bischof and Andreas Wagner
This paper investigates the effect of occupant behaviour and expectations on energy use and indoor environmental conditions of six case study dwellings in three sustainable social housing developments in UK using building performance evaluation me
Rajat Gupta and Mariam Kapsali
In 2004 the first adaptive thermal comfort guideline was introduced in the Netherlands. Recently a new, upgraded version of this ISSO 74 (ATG) guideline has been developed.
A.C. Boerstra, J. van Hoof, A.M. van Weele
This paper evaluates the adaptive method application proposed by the last version of ASHRAE 55 (2013) standard in two different climates in Brazil.
Renata De Vecchi, Márcio J. Sorgato, Miguel Pacheco, Christhina Cândido and Roberto Lamberts
Rehva Guide No 6 – Indoor Climate and Productivity in Offices - states as its main purpose to establish quantitative relationships of indoor environmental aspects with performance and sickness absenteeism.
Joe L. Leyten, Arjen K. Raue , Stanley R. Kurvers
Floor heating is characterized by small horizontal and vertical temperature differences, and might be especially suitable for Japanese homes where it is customary to sit on the floor.
Hom B. Rijal, Toshiaki Omori, Michael A. Humphreys, J. Fergus Nicol
Increasing personal comfort by heating office building occupants locally means that the lower setpoint for space heating.
J. Verhaart, M. Veselý, S. Kik, W. Zeiler
This survey was designed to investigate university student rooms to realize energy savings related to thermal control use and the relations among thermal sensation, clothing insulation, and outdoor air temperature in pre-cooling and post-cooling s
Noriko Umemiya and Tomohiro Taniguchi
In this work is analyzed the improvement of comfort conditions using confluent jets ventilation located near the floor level in front to the occupants in an experimental chamber.
Eusébio Z. E. Conceição, Mª. Manuela J. R. Lúcio and Hazim B. Awbi
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
This paper analyses responses of ninety-nine students to a design brief for a public building in different regions of China.
Adrian Pitts
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
The need to identify occupants’ behaviour-responses to thermal discomfort during the heating season has become one of the priorities in the quest to reduce energy demand.
Stephanie Gauthier and David Shipworth
