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).

Thermal comfort and sensation are important aspects of the building design and indoor climate control as modern man spends most of the day indoors.
Ali Youssef, Nicolás Caballero, Jean-Marie Aerts, Belgium
Wood is a hygroscopic material, it has the ability to adsorb or desorb water in response to the ambient relative humidity. Thus, the ambient air will affect the moisture content of the wood, and in turn, the dimension of the wood.
Paula Wahlgren, Fredrik Domhagen, Sweden
The work presented is the continuation of the research on the probabilistic modelling of air infiltration carried out by the author over many years.
Krystyna Pietrzyk, Sweden
The airtightness of new buildings has significantly improved in the last two decades thanks to building energy performance regulations. However, until now, low knowledge is available about the evolution of buildings’ envelope airtightness.
Andrés Litvak, Fabien Allègre, Bassam Moujalled, Valérie Leprince, France
Multiple authors stated that, when performing fan pressurization test, Ordinary Least Square (OLS) method should not be used as a regression technique anymore.
Martin Prignon, Arnaud Dawans, Geoffrey van Moeseke, 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
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
The new schools in Canada are designed to improve indoor environment quality while achieving a much better energy performance than the code compliance requirements.  
Michel Tardif, Sébastien Brideau, Canada
This study is a first large-scale analysis of the performance of a cloud connected and smart residential mechanical extract ventilation (MEV) system based on field data.
Bavo De Maré, Stijn Germonpré, Jelle Laverge, Frederik Losfeld, Ivan Pollet, Steven Vandekerckhove, Belgium
People spend the majority of their time in their own homes and so the indoor environmental conditions are an important determinant of population health and wellbeing and have economic consequences.
Constanza Molina, Amy Jackson, Benjamin Jones, United Kingdom
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
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
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
The association between indoor air quality (IAQ) and sleep quality was investigated in this study.
Chenxi Liao, Marc Delghust, Jelle Laverge, Belgium
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
This study aims to evaluate the performances of a VMI, a demand-controlled mechanical supply ventilation system, in an experimental house, in terms of indoor air quality (IAQ), energy performance and thermal comfort.
Clement Laffeter, Xavier Faure, Michele Potard, Claude Bardoul, Julien Escaich, Ophelie Ouvrier Bonnaz, Etienne Wurtz, France
In school and office buildings, the ventilation system has a large contribution to the total energy use. A control strategy that adjusts the operation to the actual demand can significantly reduce the energy use.
Bart Merema, Dirk Saelens, Hilde Breesch, Belgium
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
Bart Merema, Maarten Sourbron, Hilde Breesch, Belgium
Energy use in buildings has a significant influence on the global energy demand and environmental impacts.
Nadeen Hassan, Saqib Javed, Sweden
Studies in the Netherlands show that ventilation systems of dwellings don’t comply with building regulations. The main shortcoming is insufficient ventilation. This applies to both the house as a whole as to individual rooms.
Wouter Borsboom, Wim Kornaat, Pieter van Beek, Niek-Jan Bink, Timothy Lanooy, The Netherlands
