Abstract

SF roof (a sloping roof combined with a flat roof) is a special kind of roof existed in the west China. Based on Energy Plus software simulation, this paper investigated such roofs as well as normal flat roofs and sloping roofs of rural houses in the Ningqiang county of west China. It was found that, comparing to the normal flat roofs or sloping roofs, SF roofs in the researched region are more effective in maintaining a stable indoor thermal environment. Building models for the simulation of the research is introduced, results of the simulation are discussed and conclusions are provided.
