Wind uplift of green roof systems - final report

Final report


wind uplift; green roof; green standard; SIUE

Wind uplift of green roof components and systems has been a topic of considerable debate recently. There are ongoing efforts to develop a wind “standard” and design guidelines for green roof systems. This final report, Wind Uplift of Green Roof Systems, describes an initial systematic evaluation of wind uplift of green roof components in a recirculating wind tunnel located at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (SIUE). The intent was to subject green roof components to a variety of wind uplift conditions and to address three primary hypotheses in order to provide guidance for standard development and further product testing and evaluation.
