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).

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
The estimation of low-rise, residential building infiltration rates using envelope airtightness values from whole building fan pressurization tests has been the subject of much interest and research for several decades, constituting a major topic
Andrew Persily, Lisa Ng, W. Stuart Dols, Steven Emmerich , 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
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
Uncertainties in airtightness measured using fan pressurization test should not be defined by the scattering of the points around the line defined using ordinary least square method anymore.
Martin Prignon, Arnaud Dawans, Geoffrey van Moeseke, Belgium
The measurement of natural airflows is practically challenging. Driving forces that induce natural airflows are characterized by low pressure differences.
Gabriel Remion, Bassam Moujalled, Mohamed El Mankibi, France
Outdoor air change qualifies the air that enters into the buildings. The outdoor air moves freely along the urban mesh favoured by the wind forces and stresses.
Ángel Padilla-Marcos Miguel, Alberto Meiss, Raquel Gil-Valverde, Irene Poza-Casado, Jesús Feijó-Muñoz, Spain
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
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
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
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 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
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
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
The opening of windows can lead to high energy losses in wintertime, especially in nearly zero-energy buildings. But can reduce overheating significantly in summertime.
Silke Verbruggen, Marc Delghust, Jelle Laverge, Arnold Janssens, Belgium
The association between indoor air quality (IAQ) and sleep quality was investigated in this study.
Chenxi Liao, Marc Delghust, Jelle Laverge, 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
A ventilation performance report is mandatory for every new residential building in Flanders, for building permits issued since January, 1st 2016.
Maarten De Strycker, Liesje Van Gelder, Martyna Andrzejewicz, Valérie Leprince, Belgium
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
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
