Development and integration of a green roof model within whole building energy simulation
Decruz, Aloysius (2016) Development and integration of a green roof model within whole building energy simulation. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
Green roofs are increasingly being employed as a sustainability feature of buildings. The sustainability approach in building designs requires reducing energy consumption and adopting low carbon energy sources without compromising the increasing expectations of comfort and health levels. Given the wide range of building designs, climates and green roof types, it is desirable to evaluate at the design stage the energy saving impact and other potential benefits from the application of green roofs.
