Publication on wind-driven rain influence

The researchers of TUM published in the international Journal of Wood Material Science and Engineering, Volume 10, Issue 3, 2015
Special Issue: FORUM WOOD BUILDING NORDIC 2015. The title of the article is “Wind driven rain and moisture safety of tall timber houses – Evaluation of simulation methods“. It contains an extensive literature review about wind driven rain (WDR) impact on wooden and tall buildings. Furthermore it shows results of hygrothermal simulation on external wood-framed walls under WDR. The influence of deficiencies is also observed and discussed in a first generic approach.
