The present paper illustrates an experimental analysis on the comparative analysis of air-conditioning energy savings of different green roof applications based on experimental measurements. Tests were carried out on nine different green roof samples, involving three types of growth media (lava, arkalyte, pumice) matched with three sedum types (kamtchaticum, spurium, sexangulare). Temperature readings at the bases of each sample were recorded for 32 months continuously at every 15 minutes. The…

Thermal Evaluation of Green Roof Systems Containing Bottom Ash Growth Media

This paper presents a study on the use of furnace bottom ash (FBA) as a growth medium in green roof applications. Experimental tests were performed on three different green roof samples, involving

Energy Evaluation and Economic Impact Analysis of Green Roofs Applied to a Pilot Region in Aegean Coast of Turkey

This paper examines the energy savings, environmental benefits, and economic impact of green roof systems applied to a “micro” region in Western Turkey. This subdivision (Artur) in Karaaðac, Izmir,

Thermal Heat Flux Evaluation of Sloped Green Roofs and Shingle Roofs

This study focused on the evaluation of a modular green roof system designed for residential roofs to determine its thermal performance. The green roof system was installed on roof models with three

The Study of Groundcover for Heat Reduction

—This research investigated groundcover on the roof (green roof) which can reduce the temperature and carbon monoxide. This study is divided into 3 main aspects: 1. Types of groundcover affecting

THERMAL EVALUATION OF GREEN ROOFS AND SHINGLE ROOFS IN RESIDENTIAL AREAS FOR SUSTAINABLE URBAN ENVIRONMENTS

In this study, thermal performance evaluation of a selected region in Alton, Illinois is performed for two scenarios; one with all roofs covered with plants (green roofs), and the other one with

Assessment of temperature reduction and heat budget of extensive modular green roof system.

It was found that Zoysia japonica was more effective in temperature reduction than Sedum sarmentosum, and sensible heat was highest on concrete surface and was found to be reduced by green roof.
