The Impact of Roof Pitch and Ceiling Insulation on Cooling Load of Naturally-Ventilated Attics

A 2D unsteady computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model is employed to simulate buoyancy-driven turbulent ventilation in attics with different pitch values and ceiling insulation levels under summer conditions. The impacts of roof pitch and ceiling insulation on the cooling load of gable-roof residen...
