Numerical Studies of Air Flow by Natural Convection in Ventilated Insulated Slanting Roofs

Arild Gustavsen, Sivert Uvsløkk & Arild Gustavsen
A common roof design in the Scandinavian countries is the ventilated slanting roof. Ventilation of the roof has two purposes; to transport any moisture that has penetrated the roof construction out of the roof and to keep the outer roof surface cold enough to avoid snow melting. Snow melting on the roof’s outer surface can cause pools of water freezing near the eave construction, which again can cause mechanical degradation and leakage. There have been...
