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).

Models are defined for various mixing conditions, in continuous flow systems.
Cholette, A., Cloutier, L.

Negative pressure inside a building may create adverse or dangerous conditions. Discusses when make-up air is necessary, how need is determined, and how much make-up, with examples.
Hama G M.
Discusses causes of condensation between the panes of a double window. Treats movement of water vapour by diffusion and by air leakage separately.
Wilson A.G. Nowa K.E.

BSTRACT Describes test made to determine air flow through entrances to a multi-storey building.
Min T.C.

Explains forces causing stack effect in multi-storey buildings and suggests ways of reducing air leakage. Mentions that stack effect makes the operation of doors difficult and interferes with the operation of dampers.
Smith, G.L.

Part of an extensive research programme being carried out also in Denmark, Finland and Sweden. Describes 75 window tests and gives diagrams of air flow and rain penetration apparatus.
Svendson S.D. Wigen R.

Describes method of measuring air flow in mines using nitrous oxide as a tracer gas. Examines two methods of measuring airflow, releasing a continuous stream of a gas and releasing a known quantity of gas.
Higgins J. Shuttleworth S.E.H.

Describes test rig used to measure air leakage through a metal framed window. Gives average of results of leakage for different air pressure. Finds leakage rate of 20 cu. ft/h/ft for air velocity of 30 m.p.h.
Mantle K.G.

Reports tests of air leakage of windows, made in a wind tunnel. Six different windows were tested, five were of the same design with different manufacturers and materials;two steel, one wood, one aluminium and one cast iron.
Esdorn H.

Wind tunnel test conducted on a scale model of a classroom show that, provided the test air speed is kept in excess of about 3mph, it is feasible to use models for predicting, with good accuracy, the air-flow conditions in and around full-scale bu

Reports investigation of air infiltration in two residences using helium as a tracer gas. Describes the residences, instrumentation and test procedure. Gives results of decay rate of tracer gas and measured infiltration rates.
Bahnfleth D.R. Moseley T.D. Harris W.S.
(Login or register to download)
Examines dependence of measured infiltration rates on wind speed, indoor/ outdoor temperature difference and pressure difference. Gives results in form of graphs of measured values.
Bahnfleth D.R. Moselely T.D. Harris W.S.
(Login or register to download)
Gives formula for calculating air-change-rate from decay rate of a tracer gas. Discusses different tracer gases and detecting instruments. Describes portable meter used to measure the concentration of helium.
Coblentz C.W. Achenbach P.R.

Briefly discusses wind-pressure on buildings. Derives equations for air-flow in a building without internal walls caused by wind pressure from perpendicular and oblique wind.
Krischer O. Beck H.

The pressure drop and flow characteristics of short capillary tubes have been investigated experimentally for length-to-diameter ratios varying from 0.45 to 18 at diameter Reynolds numbers ranging from 8 to 1500. In the range of the dime
Kreith, F., Eisenstadt, R.

The wind pressures on a building can be decreased by a shelter hedge. Gives results of wind tunnel tests which show how this shelter effect depends on the distance between hedge and house, and on the wind direction.
Blenk H. Tienes H.

Presents a new concept of describing the tolerance level of radon daughters. This concept is in terms of the alpha-energy dose resulting from the complete decay of the daughters.
Kusnetz H.L.
