The Thermal Analysis of Green Roof Performance in Different
Transcript of The Thermal Analysis of Green Roof Performance in Different
at Different Climates in Jordan
A green roof is a roof of a building that is partially or completely covered with vegetation and soil, or a growing medium, planted over a waterproofing membrane
What is a
To evaluate the effect of green roofs on the heating and cooling loads of the residential houses in Jordan at different locations and climates
To develop an optimized set of parameters of green roofs for each climate
To provide a decision tool when designing green roofs for different climates in Jordan
To preset a simplified physical green roof model for educational purposes
9 cases for each region
Two identical boxes
Energy Balance of a Green Roof
Prices, Expenses & Income
Green roofs in general have a positive impact on the building and have a potential to reduce the energy use intensity in comparison to conventional roof.
Insulation thickness is the parameter that affects the EUI of the building the most in all climate types.
the soil depth parameter affects the EUI nominally for all climate types.
Green roofs are more effective in reducing the heating loads of a building
Only two parameters were selected with a limit on the number of subset variables for each parameter.
It was assumed that 100% of the building roof area was a green roof, which may not be the case always.
limitation of the green roof model integrated in HAB software
This includes the number of parameters being tested and the different climates under which the testing is done.
The use of different simulation softwares to see which one simulates the behavior of green roofs more accurately and effectively
An online tool available for the public may be developed.
