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 building industry nowadays is facing two major challenges – increased concern for energy reduction and growing need for thermal comfort.
Vaibhav Khare, Anuj Mathur, Jyotirmay Mathur, Mahabir Bhandari
This paper aims at assessing the energy savings potential of cold climate Air Source Integrated Heat Pumps (AS-IHP)s for Canadian households.
Kun Zhang, Humberto Quintana, David Bradley, Michaël Kummert, Mark Riley
Energy models are used in the residential sector to determine the baseline energy consumption and to predict the future energy demand.
Aner Martinez Soto, Mark Jentsch
Building airtightness is a critical factor for Nearly Zero-Energy Buildings and represents a key challenge for the building sector.

Ventilative cooling—i.e., the use of natural or mechanical ventilation strategies to cool indoor spaces—can be very effective to reduce the cooling energy demand in buildings in summer or mid-season conditions.
QUALICHeCK
Electric fans used for cooling or local ventilation are common household appliances around the world, especially in developing countries. They offer many advantages such as low cost and energy savings, as well as easy implementation.
Ran Gao, Wei Zhang, Ying Zhang, Angui Li
The aim of this study was to determine the concentration of Legionella pneumophila in the surface dust of the air ducts of central air conditioning systems and evaluate its effects on indoor air quality.
BY Zhang, F Liu, XD Chen
A common room-heating technique involves the use of a wall-mounted radiator without forced convection.
Amir Sattari
Longitudinal ventilation is a common technique for smoke management during a fire accident within tunnels.
Ali Kazemipour, Hossein Afshin and Bijan Farhanieh
A heat recovery ventilator (HRV) is used to create a balanced ventilation system in residential buildings and as an energy-saving measure.
Boualem Ouazia, Rock Glazer, Franck Szadkowski, Clifford Hoyme
In this paper, the numerical and experimental performance of a new Thai Modern Façade (TMF) are investigated. Two configurations were considered namely, the Thai Modern Façade wall (TMF) and the Thai modern façade wall with fin (TMF-WF).
T. Ananacha, W. Puangsombut, J. Hirunlabh, J. Khedari
The quality of indoor environments influences satisfaction, health, and work performance of occupants.
Alan Kabanshi, Hans Wigö, Marijke Keus van de Poll, Robert Ljung, Patrik Sörqvist
This paper reports on research to analyze the indoor air quality (IAQ) and the concentration and varying patterns of CO2, formaldehyde and TVOC in commercial buildings located in Chongqing, South-West China.
Li Cheng, Baizhan Li, A. N. Baldwin, Yong Ding, Wei Yu, Liu Hong
Contamination distributions were calculated and evaluated by contamination area ratio at respiration height for actual smoking rooms. As a result, 1) Dust contamination area ratio is about 20 % for required ventilation volume by Guidelines.
Noriko Umemiya, Satoshi Hirata, Ayako Fujita, Tomohiro Kobayashi
The paper presents a laboratory investigation about cork-cement mixtures designed for building applications. Samples are prepared by mixing cork aggregates, sand, cement and water.
Chadi Maalouf, Hocine Boussetoua, Tala Moussa, Mohammed Lachi, Azzedine Belhamri
The paper presents a numerical methodology to assess wind pedestrian comfort and natural ventilation in urban areas. UrbaWind, an automatic computational fluid dynamics code, is improved to model the wind in dense urban environments.
Stephane Sanquer, Guillaume Caniot, Sachin Bhandare
Thermal performance of Earth Air Tunnel Heat Exchanger (EATHE) under transient operating conditions depends upon the shape of thermal influence zone within the soil domain around the buried pipe.
Rohit Mishra, Vikas Bansal, Tarun K Aseri
Building performance simulation has been utilised for the investigation of thermal comfort and airflow within a naturally ventilated, self-sufficient house in a bushfire prone area.
Yanni Papadopoulos, Veronica Soebarto
