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 the use of a tracer to measure the dispersal of air pollutants. Suggest use of Freon-12 or sulphur hexafluoride as tracer.
Collins G.F. Bartlett F.E. Turk A. Edmonds S.M. Mark H.L.

Discusses pressure distribution on buildings. Describes wind tunnel tests on model buildings. Pressure distribution on walls were measured in a constant velocity field and in anartificially produced velocity gradient.
Baines W.D.

Describes both the macro and micro meteorological structure of strong winds in the earths boundary layer. Discusses the wind speed spectrum, characteristics of mean flow and gustiness and the structure of turbulence.
Davenport A.G.

Reviews some previous work on the measurement of wind pressures at full-scale. Deals with some of the problems arising.
Newberry C.W.

Sets out the similarity requirements which must be observed so that results of wind tunnel tests may be used to predict behaviour of full-scale prototypes in the natural wind. Discusses rigid models, suspension bridges, models of slender towers.
Whitbread R.E.

Describes experimental techniques used to produce turbulent boundary layers in a wind tunnel. Gives model law for velocity profile in a turbulent flow over a rough surface.
Franck N.

Describes a method for measuring the radon concentration of three litre samples of atmospheric air without pretreatment. Apparatus used consists of a 12 in. photomultiplier with 2ns (ag) phosphor and counting chamber.

Describes an instrument for the measurement of air infiltration into buildings.
Orr H.W.

Describes the ventilation of buildings by analogy with electric circuits and derives expressions for ventilation with and without flow through ducts in the roof. Finds that in general ventilation rate will vary linearly with wind velocity.
Smith C.

Describes experiments in a wind tunnel on a model of a tall building of rectangular plan to show the effects of variation in wind velocity with height and the variation of local wind pressures with angle of wind.
Bray B.G. de.

A study made to confirm the values given in german standard DIN 4701. considers theoretical natures of air permeability and the k-value as they concern windows.
Schule W.
