Hello Alina,

there is a material called "Asphalt Shingle System" in the Northamerican Datasource.
You can find them with the database search function (WUFI Pro 6.x). Just enter asphalt.
For the membrane search one with the same sd-value or permeability as your one, that will do it.

Hello WUFI Team:

Thank you for your reply!

When I search "asphalt" in WUFI Plus database, there is no "asphalt system", I only can find "asphalt impregnated paper".
The version of WUFI Plus I am using is V.2.5.4.0.

Thank you!

The "Asphalt Shingle System" has a perm-in rating of 0.0472, meaning that it would have a perm rating of 0.3. This seems low--don't most asphalt shingles have a perm rating of around 0.9? (http://www.owenscorning.com/NetworkShar ... r-2011.pdf)
