AIRBASE is the Bibliographic Database of the AIVC. It contains publications and abstracts of articles 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 etc. 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 22000 references and 16000 documents available online). For most of the references, the full document is also available online.

The AIVC website includes a protected content feature that provides access to AIRBASE. Access to the protected content is free of charge but requires you to register first.

The characteristics of the building that has been renoved according to the german standard "pasive house", are presented.

Concerning house ventilation, occupants are aware of the necessity of suppressing the vicious air but less of the obligation of entering outside air.
Millet J.R.
For that study a seated computational thermal manikin (CTM) is used to study the microenvironment around human body with or wihtout personalized ventilation system (PV).

Identifying health improvements in the upper and lower airways of office workers was the aim of that experimental field study.
Skulberg K.R., Skyberg K., Kruse K., Eduard W., Levy F., Kongerud J., Djupesland P.
For that study, 1014 pupils from 8 schools were questionned in the aim to study asthma and allergy in relation to diet and the school environment.

A case study is presented in this paper regarding the fine particulate matter and its carbonaceous compositions in six residential homes in Hong Kong.
Cao J.J., Lee S.C., Chow J.C., Cheng Y., Ho K.F., Fung K., Liu S.X., Watson J.G.
For that study a field survey on indoor environment in 10 office buildings with displacement ventilation was performed. The responses of 227 occupants were collected and analysed.
Melikov A., Pichurov G., Naydenov K., Langkilde G.
In this paper, three methods of recovering sensible heat during heating and ventilation process of heat pump have been studied experimentally.
Nguyen A., Kim Y., Shin Y.
In order to investigate the difference between mixing (MV) and displacement ventilation (DV) under different boundary conditions, a numerical simulation with a validated CFD model of several types of buildings was used.
Lin Z., Chow T.T., Fong K.F., Wang Q., Li Y.
A numerical simulation with a validated CFD model of several types of buildings was used to investigate the difference between mixing (MV) and displacement ventilation (DV) under different boundary conditions.The second part of that study deals

To study the microenvironment around human body with personalized ventilation system, a seated computational thermal manikin is used.
Naiping Gao, Jianlei Niu
Using the same system for natural ventilation and smoke control is the examined possibility of that study. In that aim a prototype building is proposed : it is an eight-storey building with a solar chimney located on top of the atrium.
Wenting Ding, Yoshikazu Minegishi, Yuji Hasemi, Tokyoshi Yamada
The aim of that study is to model and evaluate the performance of several ventilation methods in pollutant removal from indoor environments. 3 different ventilation methods are examined : a displacement ventilation and two mixing systems.
Xudong Yang, Jelena Srebric, Xianting Li, Guoqing He
For that study, measurements were carried out in an office-type experimental room to investigate the distribution of airflow velocity and air temperature.
Chao C.Y.H., Wan M.P.
For the characterization of PM (particulate matter) indoor/outdoor relationships for wind induced naturally ventilated residences in taiwan region, a simple size-dependent indoor air quality model was applied in association with measured outdoo

This paper summarizes key results of ASHRAE Research project RP-1137, which sought to quantify the benefits and longevity of the recommissioning process on variable air volume (VAV) systems that incorporate direct digital control (DDC).
Klaczek W., Fleming P., Ackerman M., Fleck B.
This paper proposes an intelligent controller for an air-handling unit to control the temperature while limiting the humidity below 70%. The proposed scheme is based on the back-propagation-through-time approach.
Zhang Q., Wong Y.W.
This study aims at developing a radiant floor cooling system using the existing Ondol (radiant floor heating system). It was found that the proposed system could provide cooling for thermal comfort with higher energy efficiency.
Leigh S.B., Song D.S.
This paper present a survey technique for rating HVAC systems. System components are grouped into categories.
