Analysis of the Thermal Behavior of Architectural Covers with Semi - Insulation and an Overlaid Green Layer System in Temperate Conference Paper uri icon


  • 2016. The Authors. This study evaluates experimentally the thermal behavior of architectural elements of insulate roofs, including semi-insulation material with overlaid green elements on vertical and horizontal planes, also known as green roofs, for temperate climates. The results of the study showed that the flux of heat transfer on the roof was reduced and provide a better controlled temperature in the interiors all the yearlong. Difference between the outside and inside temperature up to 4 Celsius degrees were observed frequently specially in the early and late hours of the days, which generate a steady comfort.
