As a practical matter you can insulate on the top of a roof deck, on the bottom of a roof deck–and wait for it –on both the top and bottom of a roof deck. Clear? How you do it is the trick. The physics may be logical, but the code language may not be. Having said that, the code does allow all three approaches. Trust me...it does.
