Hello, I want to simulate a green roof using DesignBuilder/EnergyPlus. As far as I understood there are several layers required for green roof such as drainage layer, protection layer, root barrier membrane and filtering membrane. I wanted to ask how I can find the properties of these materials (conductivity, density, thickness and specific heat). Thank you in advance for any help that you can provide.

Look on the websites of green roof design companies and in scientific articles.

Kind regards,
