Abstract

With the specific intention to provide experimental data for model development and model validation, a new measurement setup for wind, rain and wind-driven rain (WDR) has been designed and installed at the Laboratory of Building Physics (Katholieke Universiteit Leuven). This paper focuses on the new measurement setup and on the obtained measurement results. The CFD-based design and the installation of the measurement setup are outlined and samples of the database containing the wind, rain and high-resolution WDR measurements are provided and discussed. This paper also provides the link to a website from which the experimental WDR database can be downloaded. Finally, the use of these data to determine WDR coefficients and their use in WDR assessment are briefly addressed.
