Calculations based on AS/NZS 4859.1 Materials for Thermal Insulation of Buildings.
Material properties and air film resistance values taken from NCC Volume 1 (BCA), Specification J1.2.
Insulation of air spaces based on method of Robinson & Powlitc. (1954). All air spaces taken as non-ventilated ie still air.
Evaluation for summer conditions (roof heat flow down) 30.0deg ambient temperature, 24.0deg inside temperature.
Evaluation for winter conditions (roof heat flow up) 12.0deg ambient temperature, 20.0deg inside temperature.
Calculations by Dr T.J. Williamson, B.Eng (Monash), B.Arch (Melbourne, PhD - The University of Adelaide.

NCC (BCA) Requirements

The R-value requirements shown on this certificate are based on NCC Volumes 1 & 2 (BCA) (2016).
Volume 1 - Roof and Ceilings: See Table J1.3a. Note adjustments as shown in Table J.13b are not applied.
Volume 1 - Floors: See Table J1.6.
Volume 2 - Roof and Ceilings: See Table Note adjustments as shown in Table are not applied.
Volume 2 - Floors: See Table

While every effort has been made to ensure the R-values given are accurate, the document has been
compiled as a design aid and the input data should be verified before any person uses it. Any user of
the calculator will do so at his/her own risk. The user should also establish the applicability of the R-
values in relation to specific circumstances and applications. In circumstances when third party
proprietary insulation products are used they should be installed in accordance with the
manufacturer’s recommendations.
