1. Economic Impact of Improved Service-Life Prediction for Seams in Low-Slope EPDM Roofing
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 10/5/2014
Author: Douglas S Thomas
Abstract: In the early part of the 1970's built-up-roofing dominated the U.S. membrane roofing industry. It was estimated that 10 to 15 percent of these roofs failed, but by the late 1980's new membranes were being rapidly adopted. Among them, EPDM (ethylene-p ...

7. Infiltration in energy modeling: a simple equation made better
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 8/8/2014
Authors: Lisa C Ng, Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: As building envelope performance and HVAC equipment efficiencies continue to be improved to reduce building energy use, a greater percentage of the total energy loss of a building can occur through envelope leakage. Although the energy impacts of uni ...
