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 benefits and limitations of time-dependent and steady state computational fluid dynamics simulations when evaluating natural ventilation were explored in a naturally ventilated case study apartment in the Mediterranean.
Efi Spentzou, Malcolm Cook, Chih Lung Lin
A simulation model is developed that allows to investigate the infection risk for Legionella Pneumophila in the design phase of a DHW system and to test the effectiveness of disinfection techniques on an infected system.
Jelle Laverge, Elisa Van Kenhove, Peter De Vlieger
This study investigates the effect of modeling the slatted floor as porous media on prediction of ammonia emissions and airflow patterns.
Li Rong, Bjarne Bjerg, Guoqiang Zhang
Building performance simulation has the potential to quantitatively evaluate design alternatives and various energy conservation measures for retrofit projects.
Adrian Chong, Khee Poh Lam
The major goal of this study is to demonstrate the feasibility of the dynamic modeling and simulation of both conventional and direct exchange geothermal heat pump applications particularly with regard to performance evaluations.
Roozbeh Sangi, Pooyan Jahangiri, Freerk Klasing, Rita Streblow, Dirk Müller
In previous studies, the authors combined load shifting and Model-based Predictive Control (MPC) for the optimization of a HVAC system.
Renato Lepore, Eric Dumont, Christine Renotte, Marc Frere
In the frame of a multi-year EU project, the set of European Standards from 2006/7 to support the European Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) is undergoing a revision. The majority of the standards describe calculation methods.
Gerhard Zweifel
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
Appropriate building design for natural ventilation can reduce discomfort, while saving energy on airconditioning.
Jay Dhariwal, Rangan Banerjee
Buildings are the main consumers of electricity across the world. In the electricity system, it is critical to have a realistic forecast of buildings’ demand for adequate power planning and management.
Atefe Makhmalbaf, Godfried Augenbroe
The scientific literature offers a number of methods for assessing the likelihood of overheating in buildings.
Theofanis Psomas, Per Heiselberg, Karsten Duer, Eirik Bjørn
Domestic Hot Water (DHW) production can account for a quarter of the energy consumed in UK dwellings and this proportion is likely to increase as the energy required for space heating reduces in order to achieve demand reduction targets.

Nowadays building simulation tools have been proven to be very effective in the planning process of building projects to find optimal solutions for the buiding design.
Lars Junghans
The exponential increase of the cooling demand in buildings obliges to find alternatives to the high electricity consumption with air conditioning systems. This work investigates a new cooling system based on evaporation.
Leroux Guilian, Stephan Louis, Le Pierres Nolwenn, Wurtz Etienne, Mendes Nathan
Occupant behavior is a major contributing factor to building energy consumption.
Xiaohang Feng, Da Yan, Chuang Wang
This research aims to define a modelling approach to simulate District Cooling Systems (DCS). A model of the network has been developed using the equation-based object-oriented language Modelica.
Damien Casetta, Cynthia Nerbollier, Guillaume Brecq, Pascal Stabat, Dominique Marchio
This paper presents a new approach to calibrate air handling unit models. This approach studies every heat exchanger component separately based on the inverse problem framework, the Preisach model of hysteresis and machine learning techniques.
Jesús Febres, Raymond Sterling, Marcus Keane
The integration of two technologies - the Airconditioning Duct System and Optical Mirror Duct System - into a new energy-saving system “Integrated Optical Air Duct System” (IOAD) significantly reduces the lighting energy, which accounts for roughl
Toshihiko Sudo, Ryoichi Kajiya, Koji Sakai, Tomoyuki Okusa
This study introduces a hybrid ventilation (HBV) system in a pig house combining natural and partial pit mechanical ventilation (PPMV). The PPMV system is installed below the slatted floor with the capacity of 30% of the maximum ventilation rate.
Li Rong, Erling F. Pedersen, Guoqiang Zhang
The paper presents an application of a new method to simplify models of heat sources in CFD simulations of large spaces exposed to variable occupancy patterns.
Petr Zelensky, Martin Bartak, Jan L.M. Hensen
