Hi everyone,

I have been through a few papers that talk about studying the soil temperature of Green Roofs. I was wondering if someone could help me find out how to go about the procedure under the output process.

Thank you.

You can read about the green roof ( which in E+ is roof irrigation) in the Input Output Reference.

If you scroll down to the Outputs you will see the different available outputs. If you don't know how to unable outputs just leave a comment here and I will explain.

The outputs you are after are referenced in the EnergyPlus documentation guide "InputOutputReference", page 218. You should be able to find this document folder from wherever EnergyPlus has been installed on your PC.

In your EnergyPlus IDF editor you will need to "call" for these Green Roof output variables, using the Output:Variable object.
