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).

An HVAC circuit is a collection of interconnected elements that can be modelled by interconnected blocks.
Christian Ghiaus
Minimum levels of attic ventilation have been required by residential building codes in the United States for years, but the precise attic temperature reductions of “poking holes in the roof” and corresponding energy impacts have rarely been robus

An office building was designed and built according to state-of-the-art design and energy management principles in 2008.
Kornel Dome Deme, Zsofia Belafi, Adrienn Gelesz, Andras Reith
This paper discusses the impact of thermal zone modeling on the thermal comfort prediction during the early design of naturally ventilated buildings within four Brazilian cities.
Ana Paula O. Favretto, Michele M. Rossi, Camila Anchieta, Karin M. S. Chvatal, Soolyeon Cho, David B. Hill, Joseph F. Decarolis, S. Ranji Ranjithan
Mixed mode ventilation is an effective way to reduce energy consumption as well as improve thermal comfort.
Bin Yan, Ali Malkawi, Yujiao Chen
Diffuse ceiling ventilation uses perforations in the suspended ceiling to deliver air into the occupied zone. Due to the complex geometry of the diffuser, it is not possible to build an exact geometrical model in CFD simulation.
Chen Zhang, Qingyan Chen, Per Heiselberg, Michal Pomianowski
The project is a design for a mixed mode system using either cross flow or stack effect natural ventilation with ceiling mounted fan coil units, in the 42,000m2 British International College campus in Yangon, Myanmar, designed by Tangram Architect
Erik André Chisholm
For building performance simulations of multiple buildings, varying objectives and data availability lead to different requirements for various model applications.
Moritz Lauster, Marcus Fuchs, Max Huber, Peter Remmen, Rita Streblow, Dirk Müller
This study investigates the effect of modeling the slatted floor as porous media on prediction of ammonia emissions and airflow patterns.
Li Rong, Bjarne Bjerg, Guoqiang Zhang
This study introduces a hybrid ventilation (HBV) system in a pig house combining natural and partial pit mechanical ventilation (PPMV). The PPMV system is installed below the slatted floor with the capacity of 30% of the maximum ventilation rate.
Li Rong, Erling F. Pedersen, Guoqiang Zhang
Previous work by the authors has identified that the selection of supply air temperature control reset schedule has the potential to influence total HVAC energy use in Australian office buildings by up to 10%.
Paul Bannister, Hongsen Zhang
This paper investigates how advanced HVAC systems and predictive control can influence the interaction between a house and the grid. The case study corresponds to a house in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, analysed during the heating season.
José Agustín Candanedo, Vahid R. Dehkordi, Justin Tamasauskas
Domestic Hot Water (DHW) production can account for a quarter of the energy consumed in UK dwellings and this proportion is likely to increase as the energy required for space heating reduces in order to achieve demand reduction targets.
Dashamir Marini, Richard Buswell, Christina Hopfe

As the climate warms, the frequency and scale of extremely hot events are likely to increase. This study predicts overheating risk for the city of Sheffield, UK at a spatial resolution of 5km when the diurnal Urban Heat Island effect is included.
Chunde Liu, David Coley
This paper investigates the interaction between supermarket heating, ventilation and air conditioning and refrigeration systems through simulation in EnergyPlus. This interaction has been studied by modelling a generic UK supermarket.
Henry Witt, Simon Taylor, Kevin Lomas, Rob Liddiard
This paper deals with a numerical and experimental study of the thermal performances of an Earth-to-Air Heat Exchanger (EAHX) connected to a country house in Marrakech (31°37' N latitude and 8°2' W longitude).
Mohamed Khabbaz, Brahim Benhamou, Karim Limam, Hassan Hamdi, Pierre Hollmuller, Amin Bennouna
Utilizing building performance feedback as part of the preliminary design process can suggest environmentally responsive strategies and inform subsequent architectural development.
Elliot Glassman
The exponential increase of the cooling demand in buildings obliges to find alternatives to the high electricity consumption with air conditioning systems. This work investigates a new cooling system based on evaporation.
Leroux Guilian, Stephan Louis, Le Pierres Nolwenn, Wurtz Etienne, Mendes Nathan
