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.

Purpose of the work
Theo Reuter, Andreas Fligg
Nowadays, it is unquestionable the fact that building airtightness impacts the energy and ventilation performance of buildings.
Irene Poza-Casado
Purpose of the work   To which extent do leaky exhaust air dampers in extractor systems impact energy-efficient buildings?   To which extent do such dampers influence Blower Door tests?

While a growing body of scientific literature describes the population health impacts of fossil fuel production and burning via climate and air pollution pathways, less is known about the health impacts of indoor combustion.

In France, in Residential buildings, since 1982 the ventilation regulation imposes air flow rate to be continuously extracted from every room with humidity production. A boosted level of air flow rate shall be reachable in the kitchen.
Valérie Leprince, Baptiste Poirier, Gaëlle Guyot
The presentation provides a brief overview of the current situation and a roadmap for decarbonizing the building stock under the context of EU directives. It also discusses how it could be implemented into Spanish building regulations.

This study examines the impact of heatwaves on indoor operative temperatures of dwellings in Pamplona (north of Spain) and presents a comparative analysis of a typical summer and two extreme summers with heatwaves in 2003 and 2022.
