AbstractThis project examined the wind uplift performance of adhesive applied roofing systems. Testing was done on eight mockups with steel decks, polyisocyanurate insulation, cover boards and membranes, and adhesives that varied in terms of type, quantity and application method. The mockups were subjected to both static and dynamic wind loading conditions. The test results were used to develop a numerical model and a wind design guide and standard for adhesive applied roofing systems.
