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).

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 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
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
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
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
The last decades big steps have been made on the road to develop and design energy neutral buildings.
Ad van der Aa, Per Heiselberg, Willem de Gids, The Netherlands
Many test methods exist for evaluating gaseous-contaminant filtration media, and a few for evaluating functional filters and other devices. These test methods are designed primarily for use in product quality control and to rank products.
Paolo Tronville, Italy
Various studies show a deterioration in indoor air quality after renovation and energy saving measures.
Piet Jacobs, Wouter Borsboom, Willem de Gids, The Netherlands
Buildings typically are expected to provide their inhabitants with the opportunity to influence the indoor environment using various control devices. These include, for example, windows, luminaires, radiators, and shading elements.
Ardeshir Mahdavi, Helene Teufl, Christiane Berger, Austria
In recent years, not only the residence but also the effort of health promotion by improving the social environment including the working and the regional environment has attracted attention.
Yuko Abe, Yasuyuki Shiraishi, Toshiharu Ikaga, Yoshihisa Fujino, Japan
Combustion appliances are used in many buildings to provide space heating and domestic hot water.
Xavier Kuborn, Sébastien Pecceu, Belgium
Low energy buildings are highly insulated and airtight and therefore subject to overheating risks, where Ventilative cooling (VC) might be a relevant solution.
Christoffer Plesner, Jannick K. Roth, Per Heiselberg, Denmark
The current policies and regulatory frameworks in the construction sector aim to improve energy efficiency of new buildings whilst maintaining acceptable level of indoor environmental quality (IEQ) including indoor air quality (IAQ).
Esfand Burman, Samuel Stamp , United Kingdom
The current development in building energy efficiency towards nearly-zero energy buildings (nZEB) represents a number of new challenges to design and construction.
Per Heiselberg, Denmark
Gas-phase air cleaning methodologies have been considered as an attractive and cost-benefit alternative, and supplement to the traditional ventilation systems securing that air quality in buildings is meeting the prescribed standards.
Pawel Wargocki, Denmark
Indoor carbon dioxide (CO2) concentrations have been used for decades to evaluate indoor air quality (IAQ) and ventilation.
Andrew Persily, Brian J. Polidoro , United States of America
Highly energy efficient buildings such as ones built to the Passive House standard, require a very airtight building envelope and the installation of a mechanical ventilation with heat recovery (MVHR).
Gabriel Rojas, Austria
With increasing building airtightness, the design of an adequate ventilation system gains importance.
Klaas De Jonge, Jelle Laverge, Belgium
Buildings represent a major end use of energy throughout the world and are typically the dominant sector for electricity.
Max Sherman, Benjamin Jones, Iain Walker, EU

The interest in phase change materials (PCMs) as a solution for thermal energy storage has been growing for the last decades. It is clear that PCMs are promising for reducing the summer heat peaks without increasing the energy demand for cooling.
