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).

Discusses mechanisms for radon liberation in dwellings. Mentions survey which found radon concentrations exceeding the maximum permissable concentration of 3 x 10^-12 curies in 13 of the 65 dwellings.

This paper describes an original investigation of a new flowmeter and a method of balancing of airflow circuits in low pressure ventilating systems. The flowmeter is simple and robust in its construction, imposes virtually no resistance to

For proper control of the ventilation in a building, it is necessary to know the factors involved. These include (1) the climate, including temperature, wind direction, and wind velocity, (2) the building performance, (the interconnections b

Gives survey of humidity in Canadian homes indicating that humidity depends primarily on outside conditions but is influenced by the ventilation habits of the occupants and moisture storage by hygroscopic material.

Reports the study of joints for a special type of multi-layer wall which has a windproofing layer of asbestos cement cellulose fibre with timber studding. Describes the construction of these walls.

Describes a computer program used to calculate the air exchange in multi- storey buildings. An air network is drawn up for the building and arbitrary initial pressures are assigned.

Discusses the physical nature of atmospheric boundary layer flows. Concludes that the primary aims in the simulation of these flows in a wind tunnel should b to model the relevant scales and intensities of turbulence.

Theoretical relationships have been developed to describe the heat transfer by combined fluid conduction-convection through air-permeable insulation with vertical air spaces adjacent to both surfaces.
Wolf, S.

Measurements reported in this paper demonstrate the increase in heat transfer due to convective air flow that can occur in wood-frame walls containing air-permeable mineral wool insulation with air spaces in contact with both sides.

Describes apparatus and experimental techniques for full and model scale measurements on test buildings. Discusses "blocking effect" of a large model in a small tunnel.

A number of cases of water and frost damage in masonry and non loadbearing walls have been examined. This damage could not have resulted from vapour diffusion or rain penetration and is primarily caused by condensation due to exfiltration of air.
Wilson A.G. Garden G.K.

Points worthy of consideration regarding air leakage, i.e. the causes, identification, problems and remedies are briefly discussed generally without technical details and some illustrations are given of problems.
