Prototype for a evaporative roof for radiant cooling, Cherry Valley, CA, USA
Prototype for a evaporative roof for radiant cooling, Cherry Valley, CA, USA
Reconsidering comfort: An evaporating layer of water on the roof approaches a wet bulb temperature of 12°C (a typical roof reaches 60-100°C), mitigating the albedo effect. Ambient indoor temperature is approx. 50 % radiant heat from surface radiation and 50 % air temperature. Interior space with a view factor to the roof only would be fully climatized. With an indoor air temperature of 25°C, a mean radiant temperature of roof and floor of 18.5°C, the ambient indoor temperature of 21°C is achieved.
