Whether you are replacing a failing roof or building a new addition, the roof design specification is a critical component to the success of the project. The roof specification is a comprehensive document that describes how the roof and its components should be installed . The most damaging weather factors to your roof. Temperature Extremes or Thermal Shock. This roof has been exposed to many temperature swings and is showing signs of wear. Thermal shock describes what happens when air temperature varies greatly from day to night within a single day. JUNO BEACH, Fla., Aug. 4, /PRNewswire/ -- Summer is synonymous with higher temperatures, and that may also mean higher than normal energy bills. As the days get longer and hotter, your air conditioner needs to run longer to keep you cool and can account for half or more of your bill.

Data for that article addresses manufacturing temperature versus subsequent on-roof temperature exposures of asphalt roofing shingles.
It's worth noting that the environmental temperature exposure that asphalt shingles experience on a roof, even in a hot sunny climate, will not approach the temperatures used for manufacturing of the shingle.

The FPL model has been used to predict roof temperature histories for plywood roof sheathing at a dozen locations across the United States. Those predictions are then used to predict engineering design adjustments for FR-treated plywood roof sheathing in ASTM Standard D (ASTM a) and for FR-treated roof truss lumber in ASTM Standard.

Remember that roof membranes are essentially impermeable. An air and vapor barrier placed lower in the roof system can prevent any water that has managed to leak in from going elsewhere.

The impacts of ventilation ratio and vent balance on cooling load and air flow of naturally ventilated attics are studied in this paper using an unsteady computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model.
Buoyancy-driven turbulent ventilations in attics of gable-roof residential buildings are simulated for typical summer conditions.
Ventilation ratios from 1/ to 1/25 combined with both balanced and Cited by: 9. Temperature and moisture measurements were made in a ventilated attic on a house with mm mineral wool insulation. The measurements showed that 1) solar radiation had a great effect on the temperature in the attic; 2) moisture content reached a level Cited by: 2.
from attic-to-outdoors showed little sensitivity to moisture accumulation in the roof sheathing.

To evaluate the effect of moisture on mechanical properties of clear wood, ii base value at about 20 C and 12% MC was inferred from each data set containing moisture-effect data. The average moisture effects trend of the data set was then represented relative.
Moisture conditions within the roof void are also heavily influenced by the effectiveness of the airtight seal or vapour control layer at ceiling level. Where there are gaps around penetrations and displaced or ripped membranes, the subsequent air leakage into the roof void can transfer considerable quantities of water vapour which are likely Author: Charles Stirling.

Diefenderfer Chair: Dr. Imad Al-Qadi The Via Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering ABSTRACT A majority of the primary roadways in the United States are constructed using hot-mix asphalt (HMA) placed over a granular base material. If you need a new roof on your home or office, you have many choices of roofing materials, including roll roofing, shingles and shakes.
No matter which type of roofing material you install, the roofing process will go the most smoothly if you install roofing in the proper temperature. Core Cut - A sample of the roof system extractedfrom anexisting roof system for further analysis, including all elements of the roof-ing systemand deck materials ca-pable of moisture absorption, excluding light weight and struc-tural concrete, light weight insu-lating concrete, gypsum, and cementious wood fiber roof Size: KB.
in summer time a green roof surface temperature can be 30 °C compared to a reference roof temperature of 70 °C. Additionally a green roof’s mean daily temperature fluctuation is 5‐7 °C, while the reference roof is from 42 to 47 °C. By moderating the roof.

METHODS The moisture performance of the attic was simulated in two ways: first the roof sheathing moisture content was analyzed with a building enclosure simulation model, and second the attic humidity was investigated using a whole house simulation model.

takes place with respect to the fluids, conduction and. Introduction. Substantial work has been done for prediction of thermal environment inside a building considering only the heat transfer, and for simulation, many programs and codes are available.
Literature on moisture transfer in buildings is also available, but the study of combined heat and moisture transfer affecting the temperature and humidity of room air is still by: rapidly the existing roof system would dry after it had been re-covered.
•To assess the roof system’s drying rate, it was essential to accurately determine the initial concentration and distribution of moisture in the existing roof system. •To accomplish this, a nuclear densometer moisture survey of the entire roof on a grid with nodes 5 feet. nuclear moisture detection technology on these roof systems to determine their moisture content.

JUNO BEACH, Fla., April 20 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ -- Florida Power & Light Company says vacationers and part-time residents can reduce the amount of electricity they use while away and still protect their belongings from damage due to mold and mildew that grow so easily in Florida's hot, humid climate.
A prioritized list might include hour of day, outdoor air temperature, cloud cover, color of the roof, roof orientation, where the measurement is taken (sheathing or shingles, top or bottom), latitude, wind speed, rain or snow on the roof, heat conduction across attic insulation, roof framing type (truss or cathedral), and attic ventilation to.

The moisture content of aggregate subbase layers was measured utilizing two types of Time-Domain Reflectometry (TDR) probes that differed in their mode of operation.
The temperature profile of the pavement was measured using thermocouples. Data for the moisture content determination was collected and results from two probe types were evaluated.
Flat Roof Inspections Introduction Infrared technology is an excellent tool to map the distribution of trapped moisture in insulated flat roof systems.

All you need to do is turn your humidistat to the “ON” setting and set your thermostat to the desired temperature. Humidistat Settings When Away: If you are going to be on vacation or away from your home for an extended period, you can set your humidistat to use less energy.

Once observations at % and % relative humidity were excluded from analysis, there was a negative logarithmic relation between these estimates of longevity and pollen moisture content (%, wet basis) and a curvilinear semi-logarithmic relation between longevity and by:
