Abstract

An overview of research on rainwater runoff from building facades is presented. Observations, on-site measurements, laboratory measurements and modelling efforts are discussed. While observations are many, on-site experiments and modelling efforts are few and have been almost exclusively made at plain facades without details. To the knowledge of the authors, current hygrothermal models do not yet contain runoff models. Implementation of runoff models is an important requirement for the upcoming 2D and 3D generations of HAM models.
