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).

During the last few years, new technologies have been introduced for real-time continuous measurement of the flow rates of outdoor air (OA) into HVAC systems; however, an evaluationof these measurement technologies has not previously been publishe
Fisk W.J., Faulkner D., Sullivan D.P.
Although the rate of outdoor air (OA) ventilation has a substantial influence on building energy consumption and occupant health, the available data indicate the outdoor air ventilation rates are poorly controlled in many buildings.
Fisk W.J., Faulkner D., Sullivan D.P.
Airflow patterns and air velocity within an aircraft cabin have profound effects on the thermal environment and air quality around passengers.
Sun Y. , Zhang Y., Wang A., Topmiller J.L., Bennett J.S.
Air distribution is one of the most important factors determining thermal comfort and transport of airborne contaminants in aircraft cabins.
Sun Y. , Zhang Y., Wang A., Topmiller J.L., Bennett J.S.
A project completed in 2004 titled Alternatives to Compressor Cooling showed that carefully controlled mechanical ventilation cooling can significantly reduce summer peak load and can eliminate the need for vapor compression cooling in areas betw
Springer D.A., Rainer L.I., Dakin W.L.
With sponsorship from the US Department of Energy, a research project has designed, fabricated, and tested improvements to an air conditioner’s outdoor unit fan system.
Parker D.S., Sherwin J.R., Hibbs B.
This paper introduces an improved model of a honeycomb UV/PCO air purifier that accounts for the combined effects of the nonuniform UV irradiation field resulting from a finite number of lamps and the variation of the local mass transfer coefficie
Khalifa H.E.
The results of a literature survey and an engineering analysis are presented that evaluate the process, technical, and sizing considerations of photocatalytic oxidation (PCO) as a commercial technology to treat (i.e., remove) low-level contaminant
Tompkins D.T., Lawnicki B.J., Zeltner W.A., Anderson M.A.
Several approaches to estimate the cost of installing and operating a photocatalytic oxidation (PCO) device for application in various treatment concerns are presented.
Tompkins D.T., Lawnicki B.J., Zeltner W.A., Anderson M.A.
This paper describes the CFD analysis of the atrium smoke control system at the Newseum. The Newseum is a museum dedicated to news, and its new building will become a major attraction in Washington, DC.
Klote J.H.
The objective of this paper is to demonstrate the value of using performance-based design techniques in the design of atrium smoke management systems.
Philips D.A., Sinclair R.
A deteriorated indoor climate is commonly related to increases in sick building syndrome (SBS) symptoms, respiratory illnesses, sick leave, reduced comfort, and losses in productivity. The cost of this for society is high.
Seppanen O., Fisk W.J.
Indoor temperature is one of the fundamental characteristics of the indoor environment. It can be controlled with a degree of accuracy dependent on the building and its HVAC system.
Seppanen O., Fisk W.J., Faulkner D.
This paper presents recent findings on the impact of temperature and ventilation on call-handling performance and selected sick building syndrome symptoms of call center operators near thermal neutral conditions.
Tham K.W., Willem H.C.
The annual costs of energy and maintenance in running a heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) system and life-cycle costs (LCC) of investments for improving air quality in an office building were compared with the resulting revenues fr
Wargocki P., Djukanovic R.
In this study, CFD models are used to test the performance of alternate design strategies as applied to a single data space.
Sorell V., Escalante S., Yang J.
This study has demonstrated that the microperforated duct is highly qualified if moderate requirements for the ventilation features and high standards for the absorption characteristic are concerned.In addition, the microperforated ducts allows f
Leistner P., Hettler S.
The author relates first the history of the cabin air filters then he presents different test methods for the cabin air filters : among them a test method by olfactometry.
Bräunling V.
The aim of the authors is to study the differences of indoor air quality between 8 different office buildings along with the different individual exposition between the occupants of the same building. That study lasted 5 months.
Glas B., Levin J.O., Stenberg B., Stenlund H., Sunesson A.L.
The main results of 3 studies on the measurment of the indoor air pollution are presented in this paper.
