About the Topic:
Roof Membrane Substrates: Their Impact on Roof Membrane Performance and Building Envelope Technology
A discussion on roof insulation in sustainable building envelope design and the role lightweight insulating concretes systems contribute to that concept. The specific topics of energy efficiency, sustainability and environmental responsibility will be discussed. Also included in the presentation:
- Engineering design properties such as composite construction, acoustics, fire resistant construction, wind uplift and thermal properties for roof membrane substrates.
- The history of LWIC.
- Different types of roof insulation and component characteristics.
- Mass effect of insulations and LWIC.
- American Concrete Institute guidelines for LWIC.
- Sustainability of roof insulation systems and performance characteristics.
- Structural lightweight concrete issues in roofing applications.
