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.


 
A demonstration house was previously built and commissioned in Iqaluit, Nunavut, Canada.

Heating energy in buildings represents a significant proportion of the total global energy consumption. Uncontrolled airflow through the building envelope contributes significantly to its energy losses.  
Benedikt Kölsch, Björn Schiricke, Jacob Estevam Schmiedt, Bernhard Hoffschmidt, Germany
The trend in European countries, such as Belgium, France and Germany is that the quality of the airtightness of the building envelope is getting better and better.
Stefanie Rolfsmeier, Germany
Many studies have shown that the use of mixed-mode cooling can bring down the cooling load significantly while maintaining satisfactory in door air quality and thermal comfort.
Jie Han, Wenheng Zheng, Guoqiang Zhang, China
Between 2017 and 2018, the Centre for Studies and Expertise on Risks, the Environment, Mobility and Planning (Cerema) organized an airtightness measurement campaign in 117 multi-family collective and single-family French dwellings.
Sylvain Berthault, Lucille Labat, Cédric Delahais, Elodie Héberlé, Sabrina Talon, France
In 2017 the Danish Building and Property Agency started a project titled “Avoiding energy waste in ventilation systems” by tracking the actual energy use in a sample of their 4 million m2 portfolio of buildings through on-line energy management to

Across different territories there are various normative models for assessing energy demand of domestic dwellings, which use simplified approaches to account for the heat loss due to the air infiltration of a building.
Alan Vega Pasos, Xiaofeng Zheng, Mark Gillott, Christopher J. Wood, United Kingdom
The perimeter space near windows usually has some problems with the thermal environment which is easily affected by heat transfer and radiation from windows.
Shaoyu Sheng, Toshio Yamanaka, Tomohiro Kobayashi, Jihui Yuan, Masahiro Katou, Saori Yumino, Japan
The impinging jet ventilation system (hereinafter referred to as IJV) has been proposed as a new air conditioning ventilation system. Properties of indoor environment with this system using impinging jet are complicated.
Mako Matsuzaki, Tomohiro Kobayashi, Toshio Yamanaka, Narae Choi, Haruna Yamasawa, China
In recent years, especially, the climate change (CC) and urban heat island (UHI) effects are becoming serious problems, affecting people’s life and health, especially in hot summer.
Haruto Kitakaze, Jihui Yuan, Toshio Yamanaka, Tomohiro Kobayashi, Japan
The outdoor climate is changing and the airtightness and insulation levels of residential buildings are improving. During the warmer season this can lead to overheating problems, especially when the house is situated in urban areas.
Bart Cremers
There is no doubt that odor is also an important factor to evaluate indoor air quality.
Aya Eto, Narae Choi, Toshio Yamanaka, Akihisa Takemura, Tomohiro Kobayashi, Japan
Throughout the certification process of air filters, the major technical characteristics are evaluating. Both theoretical models and experimental methods, proves some relationships between the parameters and the performance of product.
Kiyan Vadoudi, Gregory Kelijian, France
Addressing the airtightness of the building envelope is key to achieve thermal comfort, good performance of ventilation systems and to avoid excessive energy consumption.
Irene Poza-Casado, Alberto Meiss, Miguel Ángel Padilla-Marcos, Jesús Feijó-Muñoz , Spain
Upper floors of super-tall residential buildings have different characteristics of the exterior environment as compared to their low floors or low-rise residential buildings due to the high-rise.
Hyoeng-Tae Kim, Hee-Gang Kim, Chang-Ho Jeong, Myoung-Souk Yeo, Republic of Korea
To date, the vast majority of indoor air quality studies have relied on repeated visits to dwellings to obtain data derived from short-term monitoring exercises, a time-consuming process that places considerable constraints on personnel, equipment
James A. McGrath, Alison Connolly, Miriam A. Byrne, Ireland
Buildings represent approximately 40% of global energy demand and heat loss induced by uncontrolled air leakage through the building fabric can represent up to one third of the heating load in a building.
Alan Vega Pasos, Xiaofeng Zheng, Benjamin Jones, Mark Gillott, Christopher J. Wood, United Kingdom
Ventilative cooling can be used as a passive cooling measure to reduce the cooling energy demand of buildings. It can be used during the day, directly removing excessive heat gains, or during the night (i.e.
Katarina Kosutova, Christina Vanderwel, Twan van Hooff, Bert Blocken, Jan Hensen, The Netherlands
This study used a mathematical model to explore the accuracy of extrapolating multi-point blower door test results down to lower pressures at which building infiltration usually occurs naturally.
Steven Rogers, United States of America
For several years indoor comfort is measured in halls of hospitals by architecture students from the Delft University of Technology.
