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).

Guaranteeing high indoor air quality and high degree of user satisfaction at the same time is one of the challenges when improving the energy efficiency, namely the energy consumption, of a building.

This study aims to assess the indoor thermal and environmental quality of low-income households in New South Wales, Australia.
Shamila Haddad, Afroditi Synnefa, Riccardo Paolini, Mattheos Santamouris, Australia
From a product point of view, today’s state-of-the-art ventilation boxes for residential buildings are generally reliable, efficient and silent according to formal European and national product standards.
Koen Maertens, Belgium
Due to the wind induced pressure, different results may be obtained if the inside-outside pressure difference is measured across different locations on the building envelope, i.e.
Jiří Novák, Czech Republic
Energy use in buildings has a significant influence on the global energy demand and environmental impacts.
Nadeen Hassan, Saqib Javed, Sweden
Within the ventilation principle of buildings, the outdoor air is considered as a source of fresh, "clean" air.
Joris Van Herreweghe, Samuel Caillou, Tom Haerinck, Johan Van Dessel, Belgium
Buildings account for approximately 40 % of energy use in the European Union, as well as in the United States.
Maria Justo Alonso, W. Stuart Dols, Hans Martin Mathisen, Norway
Since the 1970s, many authors have discussed the impact of poor airtightness on building energy use, indoor air quality, building damage, or noise transmission.
Adeline Bailly Mélois, Anh Dung Tran, Mohamed El Mankibi, François Rémi Carrié, Bassam Moujalled,Gaëlle Guyot, France
Mixed-mode ventilation uses intelligent switching between natural and (partly) mechanical ventilation modes to find the best possible balance between indoor air quality, user comfort and energy consumption.
Bert Belmans, Dorien Aerts, Stijn Verbeke, Amaryllis Audenaert, Filip Descamps, Belgium
Building airtightness tests have become very common in several countries, either to comply with minimum requirements of regulations or programs, or to justify input values in calculation methods.
Dimitrios Kraniotis, Arnab Chaudhuri , Norway
This overview focuses on model based control strategies for ventilation in nearly zero energy buildings (nZEB) where slower reactions towards disturbances are expected as a result of high insulation and air tightness of the building envelope (Kill

The indoor thermal comfort and air quality in classrooms have become of interest worldwide, predominantly because of their influence on children’s health, learning performance and productivity.
Shamila Haddad, Afroditi Synnefa, Miguel Ángel Padilla Marcos, Riccardo Paolini, Deo Prasad, Mattheos Santamouris, Australia
In Switzerland, 70 % of building refurbishments are realised in stages. When only a window replacement is done, the new airtight windows can lead to a reduced infiltration air exchange and subsequently there may be moisture issues, e.g. mould.
Caroline Hoffmann, Achim Geissler, Claudia Hauri, Heinrich Huber, Austria
Air filters installed in ventilation systems face various types of aerosols during their service life, both in residential and in commercial buildings.
Jesús Marval, Luis Medina, Emanuele Norata, Paolo Tronville, Italy
As newer homes are being built tighter than the existing housing stock, questions have been raised about the concentrations of pollutants of concern in new homes and how mechanical ventilation systems can address this issue.
Iain Walker, Brett Singer, Rengie Chan, United States of America
This paper discusses two particular points of the buildings airtightness measurement method (ISO 9972) in relation with the pressure difference: (1) the nature of the pressure tap and (2) the place of the pressure tap outside. 
Christophe Delmotte, Belgium
