CFD analysis and experimental comparison of novel roof tile shapes

In tiled pitched roofs, a ventilated layer reduces the heat transfer between tiles and roof structure by means of natural and forced convection, thereby also reducing the cooling energy requirement. This effect could be enhanced by increasing the air permeability between the tiles by means of novel...
