Abstract :

In India the environment of many of the city is very warm. Owing to the increasing population needs, the construction activity is at its boom, resulting in an increase in concrete structures and consequently decrease in green areas. The climate of the city is quiet warm during the months of summer with temperature reaching up to 480C so proper care should be taken to avoid getting any kind of heat related alignment. Also the phenomenon of global warming or climate change has led to many environmental issues including higher atmospheric temperatures, intensive precipitation, and increased greenhouse gaseous emission resulting in increased indoor discomfort condition. Researchers worldwide collectively agreed that one way of reducing the impact of global warming is by implementing “Green Roof Technology” which integrates vegetation, growing medium and water proofing membrane on top of the roof surface. It gives the effect of green plantation on inclined roof to the indoor temperature on any building in hot climate. The experiment showed a promising result where by the average indoor temperature dropped between 0.6°C to 2.7°C as recorded during the observation for bare roof, while average indoor surface temperatures dropped between 4.8°C to 6.9° C with green roof during daytime.
