Airbase

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.


 
Cooking can be a major source of exposure to particulate matter. Range hoods can be used to reduce odours, moisture and contaminants resulting from cooking.
Wouter Borsboom, Willem de Gids, Iain Walker, Piet Jacobs, EU
Design of ventilation systems in Belgium is currently based on the Belgian Standard NBN D 50-001:1991.
Sébastien Pecceu, Samuel Caillou, Romy Van Gaever, EU
It is well known that the olfactory sensitivity changes with exposure time and concentration of odor under continuous exposure to odor in the air.
Toshio Yamanaka, Akihisa Takemura, EU
Earlier field measurements in Low Energy Buildings have shown that excess temperatures can easily occur during summertime in well-insulated houses, also in northern part of Europe.
Ola Gustafsson, Caroline Haglund Stignor, Huijuan Chen, Svein Ruud, Jon Persson, EU
Bio-based insulation materials represent an alternative to petro-based materials which may contribute to enhance buildings energy efficiency.
Ana Maria Tobon, Yves Andres, Nadine Locoge, EU
This study is designed to investigate the particulate matter removal efficiency of domestic air cleaner products and seeks to compare the particulate matter removal efficiency in a laboratory with that in real life. 
KiChul Kim, YunGyu Lee, Kyung Mo Kang, EU
Air Handling Unit (AHU), as a system for space heating and cooling is one of the most relevant causes of energy consumption in both residential and tertiary sector buildings.
Kiyan Vadoudi, Sandrine Marinhas, EU
The different methods for air flow rate measurement at air terminal devices are presented in this overview, such as van anemometer with a cone, small velocity probe (thermal probe or small vane anemometer), compensation method, etc.
Samuel Caillou, EU
An implementation of a Condensation, Damp and Mould (CD&M) Strategy for the Thamesmead estate in south-east London Targeting 2000 homes.
Peter Rickaby, Ian Mawditt, Adam Fudakowski, Simon Jones, EU
Product connectivity makes products and systems remotely controllable and possibly interoperable with other devices in the house. 
François-Yves Prévost, Xavier Boulanger, Christophe Barras, EU
The work reported in this paper extends previous work on the feasibility to characterise air leakage and mechanical ventilation avoiding intrusiveness of traditional measurement techniques.
Antonio Javier Alonso Sergio Castaño, Manuel Pérez, María José Jiménez, EU
Many studies reported that there were insufficient ventilation and excessive CO2 concentration in air-conditioned residential buildings, but few solutions were provided.
Zhengtao Ai, Guoqiang Zhang, EU
Demand Control Ventilation strategy resilience is analysed through the envelope leakage distribution.
Xavier Faure, Frederik Losfeld, Ivan Pollet, Etienne Wurtz, Ophélie Ouvrier Bonnaz, EU
The steady pressurisation method measures the building leakage in a range of high pressures, typically 10-60 Pa.
Christopher Wood, Xiaofeng Zheng, Alan Vega Pasos, Yun-Sheng Hsu, Luke Smith, EU
Surface condensation risk is a fact that has to be dealt with when buildings are airtight. Airtight buildings with lower ventilation rates are the result of applying energy saving policies and criteria.
Linares Pilar, García-Ortega Sonia, EU
Indoor carbon dioxide (CO2) concentrations have been used for decades to purportedly evaluate indoor air quality (IAQ) and ventilation.
Andrew Persily, EU
This workshop session will consist of a series of presentations by members of the Board for the Indoor Environmental Quality – Global Alliance (IEQ-GA).
Donald Weekes, EU
The AcouReVe Project aimed to improve the knowledge and the quality of acoustic calculation in ventilation ductworks. Such calculations are based on simplified models and the main issue is the input data.
François Bessac, Catherine Guigou-Carter, Simon Bailhache, Camille Lefebvre, EU
In these three presentations, we review the origins and history of the Indoor Environmental Quality Global Alliance, AIVC’s view of the potential value of IEQ-GA, and directions it is taking and may take over the next decade. 
William Bahnfleth, Peter Wouters, Donald Weekes, EU
Mechanical ventilation is vital in modern homes to insure adequate indoor air quality.
Danny Parker, Eric Martin, Karen Fenaughty, Delia D’Agostino, EU
