The effects of wind-driven rain on the hygrothermal conditions behind wooden beam ends and at the interfaces between internal insulation and existing solid masonry

August 2019 - Posted: 11/8/2019

Wind-driven rain (WDR) quantification performed experimentally on 2 case buildings. Effect of WDR on hygrothermal conditions in internally insulated masonry studied. Numerical simulations to determine WDR effect on hygrothermal performance. WDR models were found to overestimate WDR deposition. Direct influence of WDR events on RH behind insulation was not detected.
