Underfloor heating systems are widely used today. They are preferred because they provide a homogeneous temperature distribution in the area to be heated. The origin of these systems is the hypocaust heating system of the Roman baths. In this study, after giving general information about Roman baths and their heating systems, some experimental, theoretical, and numerical studies are introduced. © 2007 ASHRAE.
