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).

A computer analysis of stack effects in a large multi- storey building was performed, comparing the air flow (and consequent hypothetical smoke concentrations at higher floors) with and without a smoke shaft.

Effects of vertical shaft venting on smoke movement in tall buildings are examined in order to obtain conditions for minimum smoke filtration into upper floors, stairways, and elevator shafts during fires.

Describes instrumentation used to measure wind pressure on two tall buildings in central London. Describes pressure transducer which gives an electrical output suitable for use in conjunction with standard types of commercial recording equipment.

In this paper, some of the more fundamental notions of the phenomena classified as "subsonic aerodynamic noise" are prsented.
Gordon C.G.
For use in various wind engineering applications, it is desirable to have a consistent relationship by which to project height variations of both 'instantaneous' winds and parameters of the wind speed probability distribution. The power
Justus, C. G.; Mikhail, A.;
Describes a method of analysing the stack effect on a multi-storey building. The building is divided into zones and a computer programme calculates air-flow and pressure for each zone.
Barrett R.E. Locklin D.W.

Describes measurements made of wind speed and direction and pressure differences across the exterior walls of two multi-storey buildings in Montreal.
Tamura G.T. Wilson A.G.

Reviews wind research prior to 1958, which was based on the simple concept of a smooth air flow resulting in static design loads for most structures. States that research for the past ten years has benefited from three innovations.

Give method for collecting and analysing sulphur hexafluoride used as a tracer gas.
Turk A. Edmonds S.J. Mark H.L. Collins G.F.

States that current methods of estimating heat demand of buildings are very inaccurate, and so large safety margins are used which usually result in overestimating the necessary heating plant capacity.
Gabrielsson J. Porra P.

Describes main features of full-scale wind load tests made on Royex House, an 18-storey office block in London. Wind tunnel tests were made on a model of the building and the results compared.
