Temperature, Airflow and Moisture Patterns in Attic Roofs


This report analyzes the temperature and airflow patterns in attic roofs using computational fluid dynamics. Temperature profiles are investigated for the attic air space and the roof sheathing on typical winter and summer days in cold and mild climates. The study also assesses the effect of attic ventilation on heating and cooling loads by considering different ventilation scenarios.
