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).

Requirements for measuring the building airtightness have been proposed and included by many countries for national regulations or energy-efficient programs to address the negative effect of poor airtightness on building energy performance, durabi
