Abstract

Driving rain is rain that is carried by the wind and driven onto the building envelope (façades and roofs). It is a complex phenomenon of falling raindrops in a turbulent flow of wind around a building. It is one of the important climatological factors which determine long-term use and durability of building envelopes.
