  • relies
  • Thus, the new generation of vegetative roofs relies on a marriage of the sciences of horticulture, waterproofing, and engineering. (wbdg.org)
  • Instead of making the roofs stronger, it relies on inadequate government standards that fail to require manufacturers to conduct dynamic rollover tests on their roofs. (docplayer.net)
  • inlet
  • There is a sports shoe with a sole (4) and an inflating device which is arranged under a convex part of the foot (3) and delimits a compression chamber (16) with a chamber body (1) as well as a chamber roof (14), the compression chamber having an inlet opening (17) and an outlet opening (18). (freepatentsonline.com)
  • The inlet opening and the outlet opening are arranged in substantially vertical regions of the wall closely under the roof of the chamber. (freepatentsonline.com)
  • solar
  • A large solar installation mounted on a roof can contribute substantially to the power used by a residence. (ehow.com)
  • Vegetative roof assemblies must protect the underlying waterproofing system from human activities (including the impact of maintenance) and biological attack, and solar degradation. (wbdg.org)
  • define
  • The objective is straightforward: If you can define the needs of a specific building under design, then, in theory, the roof system could be any system that meets these requirements. (buildings.com)
  • design
  • Vegetative roof drainage design must both maintain optimum growing conditions in the growth medium and manage heavy rainfall without sustaining damage due to erosion or ponding of water. (wbdg.org)
  • The resulting pressure coefficients used to design purlins, girts and cladding, and their attachments, are substantially larger at roof edges and eaves than was the case under ASCE 7-10," Hamburger says. (metalconstructionnews.com)
  • [ 4 ] Spires are considered integral parts of the architectural design of buildings, to which changes would substantially change the appearance and design of the building, whereas antennas may be added or removed without such consequences. (thefullwiki.org)
  • flat
  • If you are a building owner, facility manager or even a homeowner with a flat roof that leaks, and you are interested in or got a bid from a contractor to install a new flat roofing system called TPO (Thermoplastic olefin), this is a must-read article for you, because you will not find this information anywhere else. (coolflatroof.com)
  • Whether you are a customer looking for a new flat roof or a roofing contractor, I recommend that you to do some serious research on TPO before investing in it. (coolflatroof.com)
  • A cheap, naturally cool, long lasting flat roof system featuring hot-air welded seams is something of an ideal for the roofing industry to strive toward. (coolflatroof.com)
  • least
  • 4. Sports shoe as in claim 3, characterized in that at least one of the surfaces of the valve lamella and the chamber roof which contact each other when the inflating device is loaded is studded with small elastically compressible projections. (freepatentsonline.com)
  • 5. Sports shoe as in claim 1, characterized in that at least one of the surfaces of the roof and body of the chamber which contact each other when the compression chamber is fully compressed is studded with small elastically compressible projections. (freepatentsonline.com)
  • benefits
  • The challenge in designing extensive vegetative roofs is to replicate many of the benefits of vegetative open space, while keeping them light and affordable. (wbdg.org)
  • point
  • The whole point of thermoplastic roofs (PVC & TPO) is the hot-air welded seam… EPDM rubber roof can be peel and stick… but TPO? (coolflatroof.com)
  • heat
  • For example, due to it being white and therefore mitigating heat gain within the building and reducing heat island contribution, a white non-vegetative roof might be considered as being "green" or environmentally friendly. (wbdg.org)
  • Even though it's not white, this is a "cool roof" designed to reflect heat. (motherearthnews.com)
  • built
  • The video clip above below a brand new TPO roof burning on a roof of a new office building that was built in Salt Lake City, and filmed by the Fireman crew. (coolflatroof.com)
  • vehicles
  • GM has failed to build its vehicles with sturdier roofs, and, as a result, people like Ms. Shipler continue to be severely injured or killed. (docplayer.net)
  • cover
  • The most common 4 extensive vegetative roof cover in temperate climates is a single un-irrigated 3- to 4-inch layer of lightweight growth media vegetative with succulent plants and herbs. (wbdg.org)
  • body
  • When the inflating device is operated by the roof and the body of the chamber being pressed against each other and the volume of the compression chamber is reduced thereby, a relatively large clearance volume will remain even when a high pressure is exerted. (freepatentsonline.com)
  • claim
  • 7. The roof of claim 1 having a transition from the first color to the second color that occurs at a threshold temperature. (freepatentsonline.com)
  • 8. The roof of claim 1 having a gradual transition from the first color to the second color with a rise in temperature. (freepatentsonline.com)
  • 3. Sports shoe as in claim 1, characterized in that said valve lamella, is sealingly attached around its edge to the chamber roof. (freepatentsonline.com)
  • second
  • A roof has an outer surface with a first color under a first environmental condition and a second color under a second environmental condition. (freepatentsonline.com)
  • 1. A roof comprising an outer surface, the outer surface having a first color under a first environmental condition and a second color under a second environmental condition, the outer surface capable of both changing from the first color to the second color and from the second color to the first color. (freepatentsonline.com)
  • rather
  • We have chosen to use the word "vegetative" rather than the word "green" in this guide because a non-vegetative roof could be considered to be environmentally "green" without being vegetative. (wbdg.org)
  • case
  • There may be a roof crush case if the roof has deformed or crushed or opened over the occupant s head by deforming sideways. (docplayer.net)
  • guide
  • With respect to the vegetative overburden, this guide addresses only the more shallow extensive vegetative roofs. (wbdg.org)
