Evaluation on Thermal Behavior of a Green Roof Retrofit System Installed on Experimental Building in Composite Climate of Roorkee, India

Green roofs not only provide cooling by shading, but also by transpiration of water through the stomata. However, the evidence for green roofs providing significant air cooling remains limited. No

Experimental and Simulating Analyses of the Insulating Efficiency of Green Roofs

The global climate change directly affects the weather pattern of Taiwan. Some research achievements show that buildings will decrease the indoor room temperatures by 1oC during summer and increase

Comparison of Green Roof Model Predictions with Experimental Data

In this study, the results of a green roof model are presented and compared with experimental data. Good agreement between simulation and experiment were found for different experimental conditions



Solar thermal modelling of a non-airconditioned building: Evaluation of overall heat flux

This paper presents an investigation of the thermal behaviour of a non-airconditioned building with walls/roof being exposed to periodic solar radiation and atmospheric air while the inside air

Green Roof Systems

The idea of using a vegetal covering is not new. Since the beginning of time it has been known that this kind of construction existed. In spite of its great advantages, through the years they have
