This is the second interim report for project RP1037u1. It contains key research outcomes produced since the first interim report was published, including three primary activities:
- Implementation of the newly developed roof condensation model in dynamic building performance simulations (BPS).
- A parametric BPS study, investigating the performance of cool and ‘non-cool’ bare metal-coated steel roofs on a case-study building, as well as the influence of the roof condensation model and revised above-roof temperature model on those simulations.
- Cost-benefit analysis and greenhouse gas emissions abatement estimates of a cool roof product, based on results from the BPS study.
