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.


 
An accurate temperature gradient calculation is essential for displacement ventilation (DV) system design, since it directly relates to the calculation of supply air flow rate.
Natalia Lastovets, Risto Kosonen, Panu Mustakallio, EU
In a sealed building with tight facades, conditions for a good indoor air quality and comfortable conditions must be guaranteed all the time especially for employees.
Fabrice Richieri, Bassam Moujalled, Sandrine Charrier, Adeline Mollard, François Araque, EU
The real performances of ventilation systems on site remains a challenge in practice. One of the most common reasons for complaints by the building occupants is the acoustic discomfort.
Samuel Caillou, Arne Dijckmans, EU
International there are many different requirements and regulations for ventilation.  Sometimes the variation is more than a factor of five.
Wouter Borsboom, Willem de Gids, EU
The French database of building airtightness has been fed by measurement performed by qualified testers since 2006.
Bassam Moujalled, Valerie Leprince, Adeline Bailly Mélois, EU
Since January 1st, 2018, airtightness testing has become implicitly mandatory for every new residential building in Flanders. There is no minimum requirement for airtightness.
Maarten De Strycker, Liesje Van Gelder, Valérie Leprince, EU
Particulate matter with a diameter of ≤2.5µm (PM2.5) has been shown to be present in many buildings at concentrations that are harmful to human health.
Benjamin Jones, Gavin Phillips, Catherine O’Leary, Constanza Molina, Ian Hall, Max Sherman, EU
Indoor environment and indoor air quality (IAQ) are considered as subjects of major concern: as we build more and more energy efficient and airtight buildings, the conflicting issues of energy efficiency, adverse health effects and discomfort beco

In this study, durability of building airtightness was assessed by means of repeated airtightness testing of the studied houses. This approach generally involves the following issues which complicate the comparison of the test results: 
Jiří Novák, EU
The opening keynote will present an overview of the current status and future opportunities for smart buildings in Europe, in the context of the transition to more sustainable use of energy.
Philippe Moseley, EU
Indoor air quality and comfort of occupants, in the context of international commitments, reduction of energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions is an important subject. The Paris Agreement of 2015 on Climate set ambitious targets to limit g
Emmanuel Acchiardi, EU
The present talk will present some of the initiatives from ASHRAE regarding “smart” in general and then focus on indoor environmental activities related to “smart” ventilation.
Bjarne W. Olesen, EU
The increasing weight of building leakages energy impact on the overall energy performance of low-energy buildings led to a better understanding of the actual airtightness performance of buildings.
Bassam Moujalled, Sylvain Berthault, Andrés Litvak, Valerie Leprince, Damien Louet, Gilles Frances, Julien Chèdru, EU
The “VIA-Qualité” project (2013-2016) aims at developing quality management (QM) approaches (ISO 9001) on ventilation and indoor air quality (IAQ), for low-energy, single-family buildings.
Sandrine Charrier, Gaëlle Guyot, Romuald Jobert, François-Rémi Carrié, Claire-Sophie Coeudevez, EU
In France, the new Promevent protocol for ventilation system inspection in new dwellings has been published in 2017.
Adeline Bailly Mélois, Laure Mouradian, EU
The air infiltration of a building, which fundamentally depends on its airtightness, can be a significant contributor to its heat loss.
Alan Vega Pasos, Xiaofeng Zheng, Vasileios Sougkakis, Mark Gillott, Johann Meulemans, Olivier Samin, Florent Alzetto, Luke Smith, Stephen Jackson, Christopher J Wood, EU
Energy performance of buildings has been continuously and systematically improved in Europe with next step of transition to nearly zero energy buildings (NZEB) in 2019-2021.
Jarek Kurnitski, EU
Airtightness is the most important property of building envelopes to understand the ventilation. Airtightness refers to the flow measurement through the building envelope as a function of pressure across the building envelope.
Loubna Qabbal, Lucille Labat, Hassane Naji, Zohir Younsi, Sabrina Talon, EU
One of the main factors influencing building airtightness is the construction typology.
Vitor E.M. Cardoso, Nuno M.M. Ramos, Ricardo M.S.F. Almeida, Pedro F. Pereira, Manuela Almeida, Rui Sousa, EU
