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).

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.

Describes a method for the investigation of ventilation rate in mechanically ventilated closed rooms.

Natural ventilation of inhabited rooms is studied with regard to its dependence on wind velocity and temperature difference between the interior of buildings and outside air.
Georgii H-W.

The amount of air leakage through window gaps in buildings depends on the width and length of the gaps, the pressures across the buildings and the resistances in the air circuit.
Thomas D.A. Dick J.B.

Considers the characteristics of flow through small gaps. Discusses relation between wind tunnel measurements and actual wind pressure on buildings and the effect of building shape on ventilation.
Van der Held E.F.M.

This report describes research undertaken to investigate the various factors affecting the air infiltration through windows.
Lund, C. E.; Peterson, W. T.;
Describes tests made to find wind pressure on models in a low-velocity wind tunnel. Three basic forms:- a semi-cylinder, a rectangular vertical wall and a block-type gabled building were tested at several different angles to the wind.

Gives results of measurements of air-change rates and heat loss in occupied and unoccupied houses on two sites, one exposed and the other sheltered.
Dick J.B. Thomas D.A.

Briefly outlines the causes of natural ventilation which are wind and stack effect. Gives calculation of ventilation rates for a simple building. Discusses the effect of a more complex building plan.

Discusses conditions that must be satisfied for a model in a wind-tunnel to give the same air-flow as a full-sized building.
Smith E.G.

A systematic series of tests measuring probable distribution of wind pressure on buildings over a practically useful range of building proportions was undertaken using a three dimensional tunnel on a wide assortment of simply gabled block type str
